This is, in my opinion, probably the most beautiful box I’ve ever designed and made. I made it for my friend’s 10 year old daughter, who absolutely loved it. They just added a baby sister to the family, so I figured she could use a lockable box to give her a place to hide her special possessions from little hands in the future.
The main body of the box is purpleheart. The box bottom is scrap birch plywood (since it won’t be seen unless you look at the bottom of the box). The legs are maple.
The lid overhangs the box to meet the tops of the legs, and the edge is beveled to match the taper of the legs.
The inside is flocked in black with two half-height dividers.
The finish is two coats of Livos oil.
