The one is walnut with a carved purple heart pull. It was a gift for my wife for Valentines Day. She puts her daily jewelry in it, watch, rings, etc… Finish is BLO, Sprayed Lacquer and Wax. The bottom is purple velvet. The pull was the first time I’ve tried carving and it actually turned out ok. Dovetails are hand cut. The top is rabbeted to fit into the box. 6×3 5/8×2 7/8

Nice box with nice dovetails. And the carved heart is a nice touch.
