While modestly sized, this meticulously handcrafted jewelry box has ample space for a small collection of jewelry and personal memorabilia.

This box is made from Roasted Bird's Eye Maple with legs of Roasted Ash. Accents on the top are provided by bands of Roasted Ash.

Except for black veneer, no stains or dyes have been used. The rich colours that you see are the natural colours of the finished woods.
