Very nice. I like the trays. Are the trays walnut? They look a little darker.
Unfortunately they are not. I do not have a planer or band saw so i was not able to rip down walnut thin enough to make the trays. So they are pine that are stained with walnut. The inlays in the lid are walnut tho, I used my table saw to rip it down but it was kind of dangerous and I didn't like doing that way.

But thank you very much for the compliment. I'm kind of proud of this one. This is the first project that I've done that I've taken seriously.

Very nice for a first time attempt. Part of this hobby is figuring out how to make things from other things, and your use of stain shows plenty of imagination and resourcefulness. Well done. :thumbsup:
Thank you very much. Yeah I tried my best with what I have. I'm on the hunt on Craigslist for either a band saw or planer

First jewelry box that I have made. Hard maple with walnut
Nice job. I'm hoping to build my first one this year as a present for my 17 yo daughter. Knowing my abilities scares me on this. I've never made drawers or anything this fancy. I'm hoping for a design similar to this style.

Thanks. Yeah I would love to be able to build a box like that someday also. But I need to hon in my skills before I try something of that caliber.

Nice work. You're off to a fine start, that's for sure. Things look nice and square. Your corners look tight. Fine job on the trays and inlay. Well done :thumbsup:
