I built this box for my dad who had a particularly difficult 2014, losing both his wife of 55 years and his only sister within a few months. This box is relatively standard fare with a couple design twists: through dovetails, purple heart, mahogany, curly maple, wood hinges which alternate purple heart and mahogany, 1/4” rounded edges and corners. Although the pictures don’t really show it that well, the sides are raised about 5/16” and also 1/4” rounded. Finished with tung oil and 4 coats of wipe-on poly. The lid has a couple small strips of purple heart on either side of the curly maple inlay that I expected to contrast more than they did. Live and learn I guess. Thanks for looking and reading.
