This project is a secret Christmas gift for the spouse .. a jewelry box. It’s also a Wood Whisperer Guild project .. although Marc is building a humidor. I’m using the wonderful curly maple I picked up at Northwest Timber.
I cut a groove into the front, back and sides to install a decorative strip.
Using the No. 80 scraper to final size the decorative strip.
Decorative strip of paduk installed.
Then I cut the sides, back and front from the board.
Shooting the pieces square and to final size.
First dry fit. Obviously, some trimming and fitting still needs to be done.
Check out Marc’s humidor!
