Here's a really solid looking jewellry box made from Scottish Burr elm. Dutch elm disease wiped out most of the elm trees in England but Scotland got away pretty unscathed. Elm is one of my favourite timbers when you can get it!
The box has a very nice sculpted handle and is finger jointed at the corners. Sometimes John uses dovetails, probably more often now he has one of my dovetail guides!
The hand made hinges feature more sculptured work following the grain of the wood, very nice.
