With all the cool jewelry you'll be making from the instructables in this contest, you'll need a place to keep it. This snazzy looking wooden box does a perfect job of keeping everything organized. It can also be used for things beyond jewelry storage (I use mine to hold change). Although the segmented turning method for the box looks difficult and complicated, this instructable includes a few tips to simplify the construction. This box can make a great gift too.
Step 1: Materials used for the box
Materials used include:
- 1 maple screw plug button
- 2 purple heart pen blanks
- 2 padauk pen blanks
- 4 black walnut pen blanks
Pen blank size is 3/4" x 3/4" x 5"
WARNING: Always wear a dust mask and face shield when machining exotic and domestic woods. Purple heart's dust has been known to cause nausea.
