The Wood Whisperer: Scrap Wood Jewelry Boxes

This is one I've had the pleasure of making, although I haven't finished it entirely yet. I learned a lot from making one of these boxes and some of the pitfalls in building things in the wrong order. For instance (you'll understand after watching Marc's video), I wanted to make the curved lid, got excited about the planing and then forgot that it's REALLY hard to drill holes for the hinges on a piece of stock that is no longer square!

I'll sort this issue out and complete the box when I have some spare time, but I learned a lot from this build. This is where I left the project before Christmas.
