I designed and built this toy box for my 1 year old Son recently. The project is featured in Woodcraft magazines September issue. The box features Q-sawn white oak and purple heart shop sawn veneer panels. I used a weight rated lid support and plenty of lid clearance for small fingers.

Another excellent example of crisp lines and well executed joinery. Great project, Dewayne.

I agree with all that. It takes guts to use contrasts like that and you did it very well.

Have you done anything to keep the Purpleheart from aging. I’ve got some purple heart veneer that is 40 years old and it is very brown now.

I made my wife a dresser out of it in 1965 and I still have the extra veneer. But it’s not purple anymore.

I love to contrast Oak and Purple Heart. You managed to get a nice coloring on the Purple Heart too. Great job.
