Jewelry Box article in June Woodworker's Journal

It's always exciting when one of my projects appears in a "mainstream" woodworking publication like Woodworker's Journal.  This cherry jewelry box, with a removable 3-compartment insert, appears in the current issue (June, 2013).  I haven't seen the edited article yet, but they always do a super job, and I'm pleased that the project met their needs.


  1. Very nice Carole, what kind of a finish did you use, and how was it applied? I finally have my permit in hand to start building my new shop.
    When combined with my garage it will give me around 2100 square feet. I will start around the end of June.

  2. Congratulations on your new soon-to-be shop. Hope it fulfills all your dreams and expectations!

    I typically use spray lacquer. Sometimes I use a coat of spray shellac to seal the wood, then I rub it down and give it several coats of lacquer. It's quick, easy to use, and works well. I'll have to find something different to use during the cold winter months when I can't spray outside, but for now, I'm set for the next few months.

  3. Hi Carole,

    Very nice box, I saw it in my issue of woodworker's Journal. One question, did you sand by hand the inside edges?
