This one speaks for it’s self. The box is made of purpleheart with a cedar bottom. The miter keys and handle are maple. This box is one of three that were ordered for Christmas by the same client. Since they are all for members of the same family I wanted certain things to join them all together. I did this by incorporating the triangle handle into all three boxes and the purpleheart for all three are from the same board.
This was one of those projects that was fun and a pain. Purpleheart is so hard and burns so easily it takes some of the enjoyment out of it. Over all I am very happy with the end result, even if I used a whole box of sandpaper. LOL
Thanks for taking the time to look.
One last note, the keys are curly maple and the handle is birdseye maple. The picture doesn’t do the handle justice.
