I made this for my wife for Valentine’s Day!

It is make from Tiger Maple (box) Walnut (legs) Oak (heart).

I had to use almost every tool in the shop to make it.

Great box!

Love the legs, don’t believe I’ve ever seen that before. The heart was a nice addition. Cool idea..

Nice project…......

Very nice box, but if you used all of the tools in your shop, maybe you need more tools. ;-‘)

Really like the turned legs. I think I’ll have to steal that idea at some point.

Beautiful gift. What are the dimensions? The combination of maple and walnut is eye catching.
