This was a gift for my daughter. It’s about 4×6 inches. This was one of the most complicated boxes I have made so far, with a hinged lid and removable tray and dividers. The top and keys are peach, and the sides are from a purple smoke bush. Both came from trimmings from our backyard. The purple smoke was splintery, but otherwise OK. I filled a couple small checks with epoxy. The peach limbs were so small I had to edge-join three pieces to get a big-enough piece for the lid. The joinery was miter joints with saw-kerf keys, and the finish is Danish oil and paste wax.
