I made these boxes for my neices for Christmas. One is made from purpleheart and yellowheart, the other from zebrawood and maple. They are about 4.5” x 3”. Finished with spray gloss laquer and buffed with the beal buffing system. I found the plans for these in a 2004 issue of Woodturning Design magazine and thought I’d give them a try.

I really like these boxes. The Zebra wood is my favorite, but both are beautiful. The nieces should be very happy.

You did a fine job on them and they look really nice.
