The lid is made from an American flag license plate. The rest is made from 3/4 purpleheart and ash, with walnut-veneered plywood base and inside lid.

The corners are mitred and reinforced with dowel pins.

I chose not to mortise the hinges because I thought the black added something to the outside. I’m still not sure if it was the right call.

The box is for sale in my Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/funksworksofwood
