Hailz everybodie !
I built this jewerly box few years ago out of scrapwood to train me making dovetails (actualy those are my first dovetails). I used scrap oak and scrap ipé to make this box. It turns realy nice. I don't have lots of pictures i'm sorry for that.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You Need to Make Your Own
- measuring tools
- finishing products
- and that all I think
Step 2: The Box
I began to make the dovetails joints using my hand saw and chisels. Only two tails needed. Make sure everything is square and glue it all. Mhm, before gluing I made a groove all around inside to insert a piece of plywood.
Step 3: The Lid
I glued 2 pieces àf ok together and cut it to the size of the box. I made a rabbet all around and glued 4 pieces of ipé with miter joint.
Step 4: Finishing
Sand it all and apply any finishing products you want. I use simple varnish here. Then, I glued a piece of red felt to make it prettier.
That's done !
