This is a jewelry box I made for my daughter out of purple heart and birdseye maple. I made this about 6 months ago but the purple heart was “seaping” sap. So I set it aside in the shop and let nature takes it’s course before I finished it. I borrowed the idea for this box from a fellow lumberjack. Finished with a couple coats of bush oil and flocked the drawers. I made legs for it with a inlaid skirt but I ended up taking it off with a hammer after looking at it for 6 months and stewing over weather or not I liked them on it. Turns out I guess I didn’t.

Very stunning jewelry box. My daughter needs one and her favorite color is purple. So purple heart and maple it is. Great design with the side doors.

Really nicely done. I can’t imagine this with legs so I think you made the right decision. The box was the cheap part, now comes the expensive task of filling it up ;)
