Bubinga and Quilted Maple Jewelry Box

BUILDING CONFIDENCE
A daughter's graduation gift sports some distictive joinery.

SHOP OWNER: Mike Pollack
LOCATION: Livingston, NJ

    After seeing some of the great jewelry boxes posted on Shop Shots, I was somewhat reluctant to post mine, but what the heck! I am an amateur woodworker whose small shop doubles as our family storage room. My daughter is going off to college and for her high school graduation gift she asked me to make her a jewelry box.
Bubinga and Quilted Maple Jewelry Box

    I made her box from bubinga and quilted maple. I used the Rout-R-Joint jigs from Woodline for the first time to create half blind joinery for a distinctive look. I finished the box with a coat of Bush Oil inside and out and three coats of varnish on the outside.
    I am always nervous about the joinery having a tight and accurate fit in the end. It's projects like this that give me more confidence to try larger, more complex projects.
