Fun project.

Purpleheart is matched, the maple is Curley and ends of some quilted I had. One is yellower and the Curley is whiter.

Very interesting, I like the square shape. Makes it really stand out.
So different.
Love it.

Pretty snazzy I say. The quilted maple is from big leaf maple on upper west coast and hence the color and the curly like that is from hard maple. Big leaf maple is also curly but not as white.

This is a spectacular box and I love the overall shape, the contrasting wood species, vibrant colors, and extravagant grain patterns. I also love the pattern of the design and the nice craftsmanship. It is certainly a wonderful eye catcher.
