Step 1: Resawing and Creating the Mitre Joints

The First thing to create this box is to cut the pieces of wood into thin strips. I then planed the pieces down using the planner. Using a mitre jig I then cut the mitres on the relevant pieces. I also cut the bottom of the box and glued the sides and bottom together. Using the Bandsaw I cut the top of the box off. I cut some thin strips of the same wood and glued it to the top of the box. After it had dried I then cut some lighter wood to create an inner mitred box. Then I glued them all together. I then cut the inner mitre box in order to allow the top of the box to slide ontop.

Step 2: Sanding and Finishing

I sanded the box to 300+ grit and applied multiple coats of Danish oil. I cut some hardboard to fit into the box, this would allow me to mount some foam to it. I cut some foam and using PVA glued them together. I found some felt and attached it to the hardboard. Finally I slotted it into the box and added some sticky feet onto the Jewellery box.
