I finally completed this walnut jewelry box. The top is made of pine, and some hard maple was also used for the handle and dividers. The box is finished with Deft Danish Oil Finish, with a few flakes of beeswax melted into the mixture using the microwave. I’m not yet sure what will become of this box — I have another in progress, and I will offer Lynda her choice when they are both done.

Top view: The five dots are just small segments of dowel tapped into shallow holes. A nice easy way to give the otherwise plain top a bit of style. I give credit to my wife for this variation on that theme. I had something else in mind, but this is better.
Inside view: The sliding tray is sized to allow access to the six small compartments on each end of the lower section. The tray may be lifted out to access the larger central compartments underneath it.
Inside view, tray removed: The central compartments in the lower section are sized for larger items. The blue flocking gives it a posh look, kind of. The Brusso hinges are certainly posh.
