First bandsaw box, been wanting to make one for a long time, finally got around to it! Kind of a late Valentines Day gift for the wife. Made from Walnut and Purple Heart. Finished with lacquer straight out the rattle can. Kind of against my whole being, I’ve been a furniture/cabinet finisher for 20+ years, but something this small is kind of silly to load up the spray gun. Thanks for looking!

Very pretty box! The woods are stunning with awesome grains and finish. I’m sure she loves it. Great work!
