Default Jewellery box

So I made a Jewellery box for a friend of mine who lives in Austin TX. He's giving it to his wife for their 18th Wedding anniversary.

The box is 300mm long x 250mm wide x 95mm deep with an extra 16mm in the lid.
The timbers are
Main Box and lid rim:West Australian Curly Jarrah.
Lid Panel" Figured Red Gum.
Trays: Figured Queensland Maple.

The box was finished in Organoil Hard Burnishing Oil. The wood was sanded to 400g dry, then saturated with oil and allowed to soak for 10-15 minutes, soaked again and sanded to 4000grit. Then the box was wiped down with a soft cotton cloth.

The hinges are silver plated brass quadrant hinges, with square ends!!

Joinery where used was Dominoes. 6mm and 5mm.

Regards,

Rob

That's some beautiful wood, Rob. Nice contrast with the silver-plated hinges, but I'd like to see the silver used elsewhere in the box. Nice work on the box... I'll bet the finish one of those you can caress for hours!
