I sold this jewellery box today. It is one of a batch of 6 I made to the same design but using different timbers to give potential buyers a choice.

I often make them in batches to try and keep the cost down.

As with all my boxes this one is jointed with handcut dovetails.

This one is walnut with masur birch veneer on maple panels. The knob is African blackwood.

I used Andrew Crawfords hinges.

I posted it off this afternoon so the new owner will receive it early next week. I hope they like it!

very nice indeed.

how much do you think that you save by making a batch of 6 at a time (in % terms)?

Thanks for the kind words re the box.

I normally build up several coats of oil on walnut until I get a sheen, then wax on top. This gives a nice tactile finish with a certain amount of reflection but not a high reflective French polish type surface which I'm not keen on and I don't think it would suit the type of boxes I make.
