For this jewelry box I chose the greek word amomos (am'-o-mahs) for its name meaning faultless or without blemish. This jewelry box takes advantage of maple's light reflecting ability. The checkered effect is the result of alternating the grain direction 90 degrees. The exterior is curly maple veneer with an ebony inlay on the top edges. Inside is South American mahogany with a rosewood, leather lined tray. An abalone escutcheon protects the keyhole of the working lock. This lock is a solid brass full mortise lock. They are expensive. I have tried to find a less expensive replacement but the quality is not just not there. Green felt covers the bottom. The finish is a hand polished catalyzed lacquer, highly resistant to water or alcohol. Glass cleaner and a soft cloth is all that is needed for the occasional cleaning.

Maple grows abundantly throughout North America but mostly in the cooler northern climates. It is hard with a tight grain that finishes very smooth. When first milled it has a light cream color that ages to a rich gold. The most sought after figures are curly or tigerstripe, quilted, birdseye and burl.
