Just finished this new jewelry box (finally) made of lacewood and purpleheart. Lacewood is also known as Australian Silky Oak.

Overall view of the box with the lid closed.
Detail of the top of the box… The plugs were cut using a plug cutter, from the same lacewood that forms the rest of the box.
Open view of the box. The tray slides back and forth, providing access to the lower compartments on the side, or may be lifted out to access the central compartments.
Showing the tray removed, for full access. The blue stuff is called “flocking” – it’s like tiny blue fibres blown onto some colour-matched adhesive applied to the box. It’s not a hundred percent cured yet, so some final “grooming” will be needed in a couple of days.
This shows the Brusso hinges, or one of them, and the purpleheart mitre splines that strengthen the corners as well as providing accents matching the lid.
