First off, purpleheart is just awesome to look at. As well as curly maple… So I had to combine the two on this project! This box was actually made for me to use, surprisingly. The splines and the handle are the curly maple, while the drawer was made from some scrap alder I believe. This actually worked out pretty close to exactly as planned! Surprise right? The drawer slides in and out pretty effortlessly thanks to the time spent making it properly, well worth the extra time. Not a whole lot to say about it other than I’m extremely happy with how it turned out and hope you all like it just as much as me :)

Questions/comments/critiques always appreciated!
