Similar to Chicago bandsaw box design and wanted to use Purple Heart that I had with a maple piece for separation. I had forgotten how much sanding is involved with these !! Anyway pretty pleased next time will standout the drawer area more for placement of some felt so drawer will slide smoother.

This is a beautiful box and you’ve done a fine job on this.

I was going to use lacquer but believe it or not it is Zinsser Shellac , about 3 coats fine sanded. I have only used on one other box – being dark wood already I wasn’t afraid of the color impact although it did darken the maple a little.
