Just a small box made of maple and purpleheart. I used the plans from the November or December issue of Wood Magazine. The finish is Minwax spray can lacquer.

Your box came out really nice. I like the combination of purpleheart and maple. Purpleheart is one really hard wood but looks nice when the right color of purple is reached.

Thanks for all the compliments!
@Greg I’ve found that purpleheart is a pain to work with, especially to route, but once it’s finished it’s work the effort. To reach the right color I leave my purpleheart out in the sun until I get the desired color, then I finish it.

@WoodworkingGeek I didn’t use aluminum for the handle I use d a small piece of scrap maple. IN the future I really want to turn a finial on my new lathe.

Great work on your box. You did a better job on the legs than I did.
