This is my latest box. I purchased some purple heart recently and wanted to put it to work right away! At my wifes suggestion I inset a heart shape in the lid. I’ve also been experimenting with dividers…learning as I go of course. This box is comprised of an oak body, Birdseye maple/oak for the lid, a maple handle with a 3” purple heart inlay 1/4” thick before carving. And friction fitted maple dividers. Finish is walnut oil on the oak and 4 coats varnish overall. At the bosses request there are no splines on this box. Lucky for me she already has lots of jewelry and baubles to fill it with.
