I agree with Roger, “flawlessly executed”. It is also unique and I love the pattern on top. I suspect the picture doesn’t do it justice.

Good grief another favorite from this website, I like the lines of this box, it has a “feel” to it even through the photo, Very well done, the quality is perfect. Crisp, clean, bold, minimalisttic, very cool. I also like the choice of hinge too. You should post more often, great talent.

Well, thankyou everyone for your kind comments, I think the photo could have been better to show the purpleheart up better.
