Purpleheart, Walnut, Baltic birch ply. Finished with several coats of Minwax wipe on gloss poly. I made this box to donate to a raffle at our upcoming 49th annual family reunion. Proceeds from the raffle help fund next years gathering. Design of this box inspired by the work of Robert Albers.

Nice looking BS box there. I like the ply a lot more than I would have thought if I heard someone say they planned to do this. Eye catching color, it’s a best of type of BS box.

Nice work, and thanks for posting.

Nice box!! I really like the purple heart. These are so fun to make. Tedious sanding but nice to complete.
