Purpleheart surely makes a loud statement when it’s used for more than accent. However, I think this is a very nice piece. I especially like the detail on the top and sides. That corner joinery is an attractive addition. Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work.

Very sharp looking chest! The pulls are great. The accent strip really sets them off.

Very nice and a great use of recycled wood. ...What type of finish did you use? It really makes the purpleheart stand out…
