Made these two jewelry boxes for my daughter and daughter-in-law. The top is a rose inlay from Rockler. The rest of the box is out of curly maple. The box sides were stained with a walnut stain at first to make the curls pop and then sanded back and then stained with an oak stain. Then sprayed 6 coats of water base poly on all. All General water base finishes, pretty much the only stuff I use now. I have a HVLP sprayer and it works great for me. I flocked the trays inside with black flock and also have a section that has black velvet covered foam for rings. The trays inside were left a natural maple color. Any comments or questions are welcome.
