Jewelry Box

This project started out as a keepsake box for my fiancé. But as I began working on it I decided to add a few extras. First, I added a mirror on the inside of the lid and then a picture that I knew she loved on the top of the lid. Then I added a tray and dividers to keep things organized. It is made of walnut with holly insets, the walnut darkened to a nice dark color naturally with only an application of clear coat. No stain was needed to get the rich dark color. The insets were a bit of a challenge both in getting the cut and the measurement exact, because the slightest bit off created gaps, but once I figured this out everything else seemed to fall into place.
