This is a fun, fast, and easy rough finished jewelry box that can be done made in a variety of ways. The tools that I used were a band saw, router, drill, and a belt sander, but hand tools can be used to make this box as well. I used a very pretty piece of cedar log which gave the box a unique look. In projects such as these, I have found my band saw to be the most valuable tool in my wood working ventures. Band saws can be bought for $130 and up and do get rather expensive. I highly recommend the Wen 10″ band saw for any new wood worker. At around $240 this band saw is of very high quality for the price. The Wen 10″ band saw offers a the right amount of power and ability for pretty much any project a home shop wood worker would need.
