This box is purple heart with spalted maple. The little drawer inside is padauk and maple. 5×6x9ish. I made this one about a year ago, and was never happy with the lid, so it got the blockiness carved out of it.

I like it – the lid really draws you in. Good one.

Colors very complementary to each other and the sliding tray is also very nice
