A birthday gift for my Mother. I found the plans on finewoodworking’s getting started in woodworking series and thought it would be a good newbie project and a nice gift. The box is made from cherry and the handle in the top is purpleheart. Purple is my Mom’s favorite color so I also lined the bottom with some very thin purple foam I got from a craft store.

Joints are lap joints and the 1/8” plywood bottom is free floating in a routed groove. I hand planed the curves to the sides and top.

this is a cool little box and a learning experience too with hand tools.
