Christmas Boxes

I made a couple boxes for Christmas gifts this year.  Here they are! This watch box features a glass lid for displaying a man’s fancy watches, as well as a special place underneath for keeping rings and other small valuables.  I made it with oak (stained dark) and maple.

This jewelry box was made specifically for hanging necklaces while still fitting on the shelf of a young lady’s desk.  It is somewhat rustic looking with it’s box joints and brass hardware.  I made it from some hardwood pallet wood, that I think may be cherry, but I am not certain.  I’m really happy with the instant heirloom look this piece took when it was finally done and rubbed down with a bit of tung oil.
