I created this jewelry box as a gift for a friend.  It has a clear top to display pictures through the lid.

Step 1:

Sides were cut to desired length.  Rounding the sides required the blade to be at a 45 degree angle with a guide setup with clamps on the table saw, also at 45 degrees.  
<p>How hard is it to make? Can I make it without prior carpentry experience? I would like to make one for my girlfriend for her birthday but I don't know much about that. How about the wood? What dimensions do you have here and is it beech or oak wood?</p>
<p>Yes, very carefully with a table saw. I usually lay a piece of stock along the guide to keep the piece I'm cutting flush since the guide is rounded at the bottom and can cause it to not stay square. Run 2 passes, increasing the depth each time.</p>
<p>Really nice instructable! How do you cut the grooves in the small pieces used for the tray? I'm familiar with using a table saw to cut grooves, but it seems like it would be tricky to do with the small pieces.</p>
