Purple heart Jewelry Box

Wedding present for my sister in law. Purple heart and curly maple, finished with Arm-R-Seal. Still trying to figure out a better way to make the lids center panel, tried an inlay bit but it broke on the second pass. Might try that again with a bit more finesse with my technique.

-- measure twice, cut once, swear and start over.

The Purpleheart and maple work well together. The legs are a nice detail.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Scott, I like the wood combination, the legs, the finish, the design. I see what you mean about the top. Not a problem if the lines are parallel or cross gradually. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Great looking box. Cool ideas for the legs. I’ve tried unsuccessfully to put legs on boxes before and ended up cooking hot dogs on them. What is your process for making the legs?
