The purple heart jewelry box measures about 22 inches tall and about 16 inches wide. The case and door frames are purple heart. The door panels and drawers are curly maple. There are six drawers that slide in and out. The two outside drawers will hold earrings. The four middle drawers are lined with felt and will hang necklaces and bracelets on hooks. Watco Danish Oil finish and set sanded up to 800 grit paper. Nice and smoooooth!! Purple heart was really hard to work and everything a challenge.

I like the color . That is super duper project. It must be pretty fun because you found this project challenging.

I like the contrast in the two woods. I haven’t worked with purple heart yet, mainly a money thing, but I will get to eventually! Nice job.
