Another small box inspired by Doug Stowe’s book COMPLETE ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO BOX MAKING. The profile of this box was created using a 2 3/4” cove cutting router bit.

DeWayne, I have a few of Doug Stoew’s books and he is an inspiration. I also have his DVD to go with his Basic Box book. I really like the Purpleheart and Maple? combination – nice work. If you don’t mind it would be nice to also see the insides of all of your boxes – if you can.

Dewayne – three beautiful small boxes in one day – not sure my heart can take this, because I just love small wooden boxes. LOL
I, too am a fan of Doug Stowe’s boxes – I have this book, but haven’t done this box.

I love the box, especially the purple heart. How long does the wood stay purple, before it looses that vivid colour – we cannot get Purple heart here normally, but I might just place a special order for it!

Thanks for the comments. The inside of this one has no dividers so I didn’t take a photo of it. I haven’t attempted flocking or felt yet but realy like that look. This one is a bit unusual and is my own design. I have been told it has the look of a small casket. I have read about the color transformation of purpleheart over time. I believe it depends on the finish and UV exposure. I haven’t noticed any change in my projects after 4 years or so yet.
