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!
