Dear Lee Valley,

I did a jewellery box practice project since I haven't done it before. I did one box for my jewel of a tool, the Veritas medium shoulder plane, which is just such a pleasure to use. Note the corner joinery where I came up with my version of reinforcing the mitered corners. I included the process of making it in my website and blog.

Jewellery Box Practice Project
I made this out of three species of wood from three different continents: bamboo (Asia), walnut (North America) and marble wood (South America). A little side note: botanically, bamboo is a grass. Let me digress for a little bit before getting into the woodworking part.
