Bird Style Jewelry Box

Wooden Jewelry Box

Bird Style Jewelry Box is a jewelry box for my granddaughter Mia.  It is an assembly of a variety of exotic woods including lacewood, yellow wood, padauk and mahogany.  The only turned parts are the rings on the foot and the legs.  Credit goes to Russell Greenslade for inspiration for his creative work.  This jewelry box will serve her well.

For every birthday I try to make something special for each grand kid. This bandsaw jewelry box features of a variety of woods. The back of the bird opens up to reveal a storage section for keeping valuables. Who would know about such a secure hiding place?

It is a challenge to come up with something unique and creative for five grandchildren every year. It seems that as soon as we celebrate one birthday another is around the corner. Sometimes the gift idea is easy and at other timers I am struggling until the last moment to make something relevant that they will enjoy. Most of the items are developed on the wood lathe as that is my go to tool. Many of these gifts require skills using other tools and I find that very rewarding. It is great fun to be able to take a sketch to the workbench and complete a 3D project.

I design and produce all of my items in Montvale, New Jersey, USA. Although my primary tool is the wood lathe I find myself spending more time at the workbench.
