Valet Jewelry Box

Both Dovetail and Box joints can be beautiful however, it is very important to understand they are not the same. Dovetail joints are more complex to layout and construct hence, when made correctly, create significantly more intrinsic value to an identical piece with box joints. The joinery you see with my work is Dovetail. You can identify Dovetail Joinery by its triangular shape. The Box joint is rectangular or square in shape i.e. constructed with right angles.

Machines used:
Table Saw, Jointer Planer, Planer, Band Saw, Router

Valet Jewelry Box. The selected wood in this example is authentic solid quartersawn white oak and black walnut. The assembly is cornerpost double dovetails. The finish is multiple hand rubbed applications of a satin varnish produced in Holland, which provides a beautiful deep and rich presentation.

I welcome your preference of alternative hardwoods. Please keep in mind your selection may alter the price, and time to completion.
