March 2003 The oak in my jewelry box features both heart wood and sap wood along with a dark natural blemish that appears on the front of the box. The wood's ray flecks, which are particularly pronounced in this oak, are evident as well.

The corner splines, the handle and the narrow trim strips on the top of the box are Cocobolo. The box bottom is birch plywood.

The box has mitered corners with splines that add strength and a simple design element. The box sides are beveled after the box is assembled and then the edges are eased to impart a round-sided appearance. The wood is oiled to enhance the grain and then waxed.
