Jewelry box tray inserts.

Has anyone any experience making jewellery box insert trays, the ones covered with velvet.
I have seen the ones with little slots for rings.

Is there a simple/quick way to make them?
Is it all about making good joints.

I buy the odd jewellery box from time to time from antique auctions but they never have the trays with them.

I bought my trays from Amazon and then cut them down to size. Cheap solution and much faster than trying to make them.

The only one I made I just made lije a little torsion box however I never covered it with fabric, I left it finished wood. I think a person that was good with fabric wouldn't have trouble covering it with velvet but I don't do fabric.

The torsion box I made the parts were about 3/32" thick and just endgrain glued together. It's very light duty so I've never had a problem with the joints failing. The jewelry box was made in 1975 and is still used today.
