I made this box a little bit ago and am just getting around to posting it. It’s a pretty simple box that is made of hard maple with purpleheart splines and handle. The top of the box is a piece of purple stained glass to compliment the purpleheart. The photos don’t really show that glass very well but I assure you, it is glass. :) I’ve done quite a few stained glass panels in the past and have wanted to work more glass into my wood work. In (hopefully) my next project I would like to create a stained glass panel, instead of just a single sheet. I’ll be sure to post that project when it’s completed.
I finished the box with multiple coats of tung oil and a couple coats of wipe on poly. It has some small brass hinges for the lid.
Hope you all enjoy!
