Woodworker: Todd DeRosa

This marquetry box was software consultant Todd DeRosa's first major woodworking project. He started out making a simple Christmas present for his 8-year-old daughter, but became inspired by the dazzling array of examples he saw on the Internet and in woodworking books and magazines. He created a mosaic pattern for the top, and used sliding dovetails to join each of the cocobolo posts to the honey locust sides. The box contains more than 150 separate compartments for jewelry.
