Cherry Jewelry Box - Week One

I've gotten a good amount of progress done on a new cherry jewelry box. For this project I wanted to place particular emphasis on lumber selection, grain matching, sound design strategy, and some hand tool techniques. I know, that sounds like a lot, but I will have a good amount of content to get out over the next few weeks. Week one is all about choosing lumber, and laying out the components.

Excellent discussion of your material selection and use.

sorry rob - just getting caught up on your projects.

nice idea, labeling the cut-offs so you know which board they came from.
