I want to duplicate the jewelry box pictured here:
This is a birthday gift for my wife. The dimensions are 20" x 15" x 33
1/2" ht. I would like to make it out of curly maple, the more figured,
the better. The main problem I seem to be running into is finding one
long continuous board to make the case out of. I figure I need either
a 8' x 15" x 3/4" board or an 8' x 8" x 4/4 board I could recut down
the middle and joint. The thickness of the final project will be 3/8".
I have a planner and jointer, so I am somewhat flexible, but I want a
flow of grain around the entire case.
Any suggestions are more then welcome.
Another place to try is
Don't know for sure if they would have what you want, but they are only
about 50 mi. from me in Olean, NY, and every time I visit, they have to give
me a drool bib. Last time I was there, saw a table top in the rough, a 3" x
3' x 8' slab of curly bubinga, and they have a LOT of other beautiful wood.
