I decided to highlight my joints with Purple Heart. My daughter-in-law had shared with me, she had made a box in woodshop out of Purple Heart. I thought, why not surprise her with an added touch. It was a hit with her…..she loved it. The arms and lid are made of Knotty Alder. The lid hinge is a design of Scott Morrision in Montana. The stretcher’s that hold the posts together, resemble the head board. Notice the Purple Heart within them, inlayed with Purple Heart wood.
