These jewelry boxes which I made for our four Grand-nieces were made of rough maple stock that I split with my Ryobi 10"saw and planed using my Ryobi 13" planer. I estimate that making the four boxes took approximately 100 hours. As I did them all at one time I don't have a more exact time. However I made several similar ones before I had my planer and I am sure they took me twice as long with all the extra hand planing, sawing and sanding. They were much appreciated Christmas gifts. I try to make something different every year. How about a $2,500 gift certificate for a reward?
