I made this purpleheart and birdseye maple jewelry box for my wife for a Christmas present…and I finally finished it in February…at least she is understanding.

Nice, purpleheart is difficult to work with at times. Makes good pens though.

Very nice looking jewelry box! I’m sure your wife will love it! Besides, you could always tell her it’s really for Saint Valentine’s Day!

Thanks everyone. @Diggerjacks the measurements are 18”H x 16”W x 8”D. Looking back on it know I wish I had made the top drawer into two 1.5” drawers instead of one 3” drawer…hindsight right? @Micheal Curtis- purpleheart gave me more headaches than any other wood has! P.S. Thanks for your service to this country

I hope you dont mind but i am going to copy this design almost completly. I was wondering how you did the felt and where you bought it. My daughter loved it when she saw it. Bought the wood last night.
