Mahogany Jewelry Box

Text, photos and design by Tom Hintz

   This all-mahogany box is 9 1/2"-long, 8 1/2"-deep and 4"-tall. It has two removeable trays for storing jewelry and a recessed bevel-edged mirror centered inside the lid. I used a 95-degree stop piano hinge on the top to make sure the mirror was useable.
   The box is built with through dovetail joints at the corners and has a solid mahogany floor set in dados around the bottom.
   The top was edged with an ogee raised panel bit, with the bottom edge of the top rounded with a 3/8" roundover bit.
   I installed the inlay pattern in the top using red and white oak for the leaves. The stem is carved into the mahogany.
   This box is easy to build and can be a great project for any skill level, especially since virtually any joinery method will work in place of the through dovetails if those are not yet part of your skills.
