The two boxes here were built as a Christmas present for my sweetheart. I actually started working on the Padauk box and thought I had totally and completely messed up, so I began making the purple heart box as a replacement. In the end, both boxes came out amazing. well, amazing considering my skill level. The first box is made out of Padauk with a Baltic Birch ply top and Walnut handle and Maple bottom. The miter keys are made of Bolivian Rose wood and the box drawers out of Walnut with Cherry for the bottom. The second box uses Purple Heart instead of Padauk and does not have the Rose wood miter keys. The finish is general finishes Arm-R-Seal which went on amazing and other than the dust settling on the pieces, I only had to sand once before the last coat. I think I will try the satin next time and rub it to a semi gloss to achieve a smoother finish.
Thanks for looking.
