I'm about to secretly make that jewelry box for my wife. But I first decided to create a 3D version of it in Blender (to visualize how it looks and what I may tweak).
I thought I would share it with you all as it ended up quite well. It's not the sleekest model you'll see... but it was the very first time I used this sofware (it took me several days to finalize this object).
Also note that there are no measures here as I didn't scale it properly.
Anyway... I'll come back later on with the real thing once it's done. I can provide you with the .blend file if you want.
Thanks for the great ideas!! Bye for now
And "old brass" for the hooks and handles.
