Birthdays always give me a chance to get a little more personal with my woodworking projects. My brother-in-law is a fan of crazy and out there, so I have free reign! For this project I knew he needed a box for his pocket watch, so this is what I came up with.
I believe the brown-redish wood is Ribbon Mahogany (though if I am please correct me since I have more and it would be nice to know what I am working with). The edge banding is Zebra wood, which is really hard to work with cutting it cross grain as it becomes very, very fragile.
The hinge addition was a later add on. Though I always wanted to put wood hinges on it, the idea for purpleheart was to spice it up and give it some flare.
