Been wanting to try making these and finally did.

 

Took a couple of cut offs from Menards and made a thicker base

Used one for the tops and there they are.

Very nice, HJ!   A bit of felt lining and you should have a hot seller there.  One great thing about using a CNC is that you don't have to limit yourself to oval shapes.  Egg shapes for more fragile contents?  Diamond shapes for the most valuable contents?  Heart shapes for closer to Valentine's day and those with anniversaries that may come up any other time of the year.  ;)

Was seriously thinking of trying my hand at flocking just to see how big a mess I can make.

 

Shapes, cover objects, and models are virtually endless.

I've used adhesive backed felt that comes in 9 x 12 (maybe 8.5 x 11) sheets you can find at most store that sell any kind of craft supplies. Also a nice touch to put cork or felt on the outside bottom of small boxes so they sit quietly on a dresser or shelf.

I like to use common felt from the fabric store.  I use spray adhesive such as 3M super 77 to glue it to paste board, ie; cereal boxes. glue  to the printed side with the raw untreated side to the wood interior of my box. Since my wife is a quilter, I inherited her old rotary cutter and cutting mat. with careful measurement I get really clean lines in the corner. I have done it so many times that it goes really fast for me now. 

 

The inside of an oval would be really simple. calculate and cut so there is a bit of overlap and trim to fit in small increments.
