If you scroll a couple projects back you can see where this piece came from on that last bandsaw box. I knew when I cut that piece off it was big enough for another box so I saved it and finally got around to making it a couple months ago. Just now getting around to sharing it here.
Again, it’s Myrtle wood, Purple Heart and Yellow Heart. I have a ton of this beautiful Myrtle wood and it has gorgeous color and lots of figure, spalting,etc. I always flock both inside the drawer(s) and the drawer cavity as I did here as well.
I decided to accent and emphasize the insert cut by not duplicating the curve on the other side and by highlighting the same curve in the drawer pull. Finished with Watco Danish Oil and called it done.
Any questions/comments are always welcome.
Thanks for taking a peek.

Very nicely done. I agree that the myrtle wood is very beautiful and I think you have taken good advantage of the grain in your design.

I like the choice of woods for the blue-up. Also, the shape kind of reminds me of a keystone. Nice box.
