He helped me put my roof on….actually I helped him put my roof on, so I made him this box in appreciation. He and I are into gold prospecting so this box is designed to hold vials of gold. It measures 3”H 4 1/4D 6 3/8L.

.........The top panel is Pregola Rosa, sides are Jatoba, inlay on top is purpleheart and thin strip of bloodwood. Compartments are purpleheart and ash. Bottom is Wenge..which I laminated for stability.

.....I made several mistakes which created a lot more work than should have been but, it was a learning experience..

....Thanks for looking.

That would be Peroba Rosa not Pergola. Gotta get the vertical thing straightened out.

It’s very nice. I hope that you fill it full of gold.

Beautiful and well crafted box! Great wood combo, the purple heart really stand out. I’m sure your brother likes it.
