I call this box Thirty Buttons because of the 30 purpleheart ‘buttons’ on the cover of the box. Sycamore is the other wood. I especially like the grain of the sycamore, but I had problems finding matching grain for the different segments that make up the base of the box.

The box is larger than the other boxes I’ve made recently. The box is 4 1/2” wide in the front, 6” wide in the back, the sides are 3 3/4” and the box is 3” tall. Finished with 3 coats of rub on poly and one coat of wax.

Very pleasing to the eye. The sycamore is especially attractive.
