Small jewelry box made as a Christmas gift. Used Purpleheart and red oak, lined the bottom with purple velvet. 10” wide, 7” deep, and 3”tall. Finished with spray on lacquer. It will have a music box added, if it gets here in time, as it is backordered.

Great box. Like the design with the tapered outer walls.

Keep it up.
