Here is the box I finished 2 hours before my wife birthday party. The body is pine (my first attempt of dovetails with the leigh 12” jig), the top is one piece of cherry, the foots are walnut with a strip of cherry.
I’ve inlayed a strip of cherry on the inside of the box and a purple heart in the front. The handle is hand shaped walnut strip on top of maple block.
In order to inlay the heart, I’ve routed the recess in the pine with a straight 1/4” bit. Then resaw with my Ryoba saw the purpleheart board and then cut outside the line and sand down little by little until the insert fits.
Finish is one coat of shellac (two for the lid) and one of lacquer (two for the lid).
Hope you like it, my wife did :)
