this box is alot of first;s purple heart wood is amazing color of wood however do not recommend using it without a carbide blade to cut it. the inlay was done with rock granulates and it came out a lot better then i though. cant complain it is square the pictures do it more justices the a few small gaps around the oak in set. but happy with the over all result like i said it had a lot of first.

Great looking box—and great use of the rock granules! Overall, a great combination of materials!

Purpleheart is amazing. I love it to, but it can be a bear to work with. Definitely need sharp tools! I seem to burn it a lot. That is a great box, just wow, look at all that purpleheart! What a statement piece.
