The Keyed Corner Jewelry Box
This is the classiest-looking jewelry box we've seen that can be built in a single weekend!
Whether simple or elaborate in design, jewelry boxes and keepsake boxes always make treasured gifts for family and friends. This particular box is made from highly figured woods using some unique construction techniques, including corners with keyed accents that give it a one-of-a-kind look.
Begin by making your wood selection. You won't need much, so you could actually make this box from scraps you already have laying around the shop. We made ours from quarter-sawn red oak, walnut and spalted beach, but with the wide variety of unique, exotic woods available today through a host of reputable suppliers, your options are virtually limitless.
Sides and Ends
Rough cut some 3/4" stock for the Sides (A) and Ends (B) to approximately 3-1/2" x 29", then plane your stock down to 1/2" using your Thickness Planer. Once you've attained the desired 1/2" thickness, joint one edge, then rip and joint the opposing edge to a finished width of 3-3/16".
