thank you very much for the compliments. I was told that the miter keys are as easy as they look. My only problem was that the purpleheart was a tad difficult to work with.

Nice box. I’ve worked with purpleheart and it is a bit hard to work. I’ve never worked with cherry so I guess I will soon after seeing your work. A nice combination of woods.

Looks really nice! I’ve been wanting to try miter keys myself. Did you make a 45 degree angle jig for the cuts?

Looks like good tight joinery, and its very nice… but all I can see is two sides. Can we see the top or inside? Nice wood choice as well.

Yes I used a 45 degree miter sled. It was too easy with the sled. I got the sled instructions from a boxmaking video but I can tell you how I made it if you need help.
