This box is made of purpleheart and curly maple. The maple was a piece that I got for 6 and it was 5” x 1.25” x 10’ long rough sawn. Imagine my surprise to find that it was figured. This was completed in one day about 5 hours. enjoy.

Nice box. I like the sliding lid design. The heart inlays are nice also.

Keep it up.

Nice job. I don’t think I’ve ever finished a project the same day I started. Where’s the time for second thoughts and self doubt? lol

The lid is a nice touch. I like it.
