Where can I buy solid wood to make a jewellery box? Specifically walnut and cherry
I want to make a jewellery box and have an idea in mind but I need two different colours to pull it off. I want to make it out of walnut and cherry as they are dark and light respecitively and I think could work quite well together. I have literally no idea where to get it from. I need it in roughly 1/2". I live in England, in Essex, but I just need to know what to look for. all I can find is places that do veneered MDF. I'm only going on the assumption that 'those really nice ones' are actually made from solid wood. To be frank, I don't even know exactly what veneered wood is.
Can someone help point me in the right direction?
