Build a Timeless Jewellery Box Photos by Rob Brown; Illustration by Len Churchill INFO: DIFFICULTY - 3/5, LENGTH/TIME - 3/5, COST - 2/5, SPECIAL TECHNIQUES - Wood Shaping, VeneeringWith a small piece like this, wood selection is all the more important.
I needed any figure in the wood to have a fairly tight, dense pattern so it would show up well in this small box.I dipped into my stash of figured and exotic woods and pulled out all the pieces I thought would be appropriate to use, but I wasn't satisfied with what I had.
I was going to purchase that perfect piece, but decided to take a quick look at the veneers I had.I came across some curupixa that had a fairly tight figure, and it also went nicely beside some bubinga solid I had.
There are probably more than 1,000 species pairings that would also work well, but I was lucky to have a nice combination on-hand.When it comes to designing and making your box, please feel free to make some adjustments - that's half the fun.
Using different feet, modifying or omitting the fan carving and selecting wood species with your aesthetic in mind are just a few things you can do to make this...
