A small egg box made in rippled sycamore about 3 inches long, I also make a small stand for them to sit on.

Before attempting to make this jewellery box in English Walnut and English Box wood that had been in the workshop for many years, I first made one up in a cheap wood to see how to go about holding the different pieces and maintaining the shape. Then made up a second one in Mulberry that is pictured below and with a stand in the same wood.
The one made in Walnut and Box also has a false base in the bottom section of the egg and stands just over 11 inches tall.
