Hi all…. made a wood purse for my nieces high school graduation. Similar to others I have done but with different woods and a different latch method. This one is walnut with zebra wood trim. Thanks for looking Rick

Love this place. I see items I had never thought of frequently. A wooden purse, say what. Nice piece.

Then I google these items, and find once again I live in a cave.

It is a nice purse, and hopefully your Niece will love it, and use it often.

i think im in that cave with you because a wooden purse is new to me also.thats pretty cool looking.whats did you use for the interior,something you made or something you can buy to make a wooden purse? nice work.

I once saw in an art museum a wooden purse made by Carl Faberge (the guy who made those jeweled eggs for the Russian Tsar) It was carved form birch and decorated with gold and diamonds. I like yours better – much more versatile. I have a wooden briefcase that always attracts a lot of attention when I carry it – I’m sure your niece will get lots of admiring comments (and maybe bring you a few orders for more.) Thanks for posting.

Beautifully done! I made the mistake of showing this to my wife, so guess what…..................??
Was this an original design or was it from a plan?
Was the bag portion purchased ready made? If so, what was the source?
Thanks for sharing such a unique, well crafted project!

Thanks for the comments guys…. The general idea came from a picture I saw online a few years ago. I kept a couple of the features and added a few new things and ended up with this design. The material for the interior is actually a silk shirt from value village with a leatherette bag sewn around it. I think there is a bit more detailed description on the other project page when I posted pics of the first ones I made 3 years or so ago but the basic shape is made by vacuum forming layers of veneer and thin plywood together. Take care all :)

Beautiful work of art and it comes handy if she needs to knock some sense in a person’s head.

That is a really attractive purse. How did you make the hinge for the bottom? Do you have a shot of it?

Cheers, Jim
