Beautiful box. I like the way the bottom rails feather into the legs, and just about everything else about it too.

Great job!!! How long did you let the Purple Heart sit after sanding? I have learned on here that allowing it to sit for a cpl days allows the purple to bleed back out, thus taking away some of the brownish color. However, I learned the hard way yesterday after sanding my wife’s Purple Heart/Rock Maple cutting boards to a nice 320 grit finish, I placed them in the sun for an hour or two was a very bad idea!!!! The boards started warping, I took them in to the Air-conditioned house, poured a stiff drink and sat there thinking, “wow did I just trash all that work?” I woke up this morning and the boards returned to perfectly flat…. Thank-you woodworking gods!!!
Again, nice beautiful work!

Great job. I love the way the edge banding/legs/feet all blend together. What are the dimensions? It looks like a decent sized box (pretty deep inside). Nice craftsmanship. You should be very proud of your work!

Very nice design on the box. I love small box making and seeing a new design is a treat. Great contrast.
