I made this jewelry box for my wife. It is made with cherry, spalted white oak, maple, and spalted mahogany. The lid was coopered with a “round plane” I fashioned from grinding down the iron of an old transitional plane and shaping it’s wooden sole to match to an even curve. I went through three different designs before landing with the coopered top. I had a few small boards of this weathered spalted mahogany which was filled with worm holes. Most of it was too funky to use, but what I was able to salvage was a delight to shape. The pin that holds the lid closed is ebony. The box is finished with oil, polish and wax. The lid is french polished.
