This box was commissioned by a co-worker who collects paraphernalia from the Disney animation Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.

The box is an interpretation of the box that the Evil Queen gives to the hunter. She tells him to go into the woods, kill Snow White, and put her heart inside the box and bring it back to her so she knows Snow White is dead.

Its made of Padauk, with a book-matched Amboyna burl top that looks like a human heart. My wife helped me paint the panels. The heart is carved from mahogany and gilded with 24 carat gold leaf. I shaped the dagger out of solid brass. The hinges and feet are also premium solid brass hardware. It is lined with suede. The plaque reads "Magic Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?"

Great job Blake. I never met a box I didn't like but, I can't say I like the purpose for each of them. lol

How about a picture of the top and inside?

Best,
Jim

Fantastic!
You knocked that clean out of the park. Amazing craftsmanship, great attention to detail,
and wonderful creativity. I am sure your co-worker will be showing this off for many years.

Thanks for sharing.

BTW - I like how you did the feet. Or, I should say I like how it looks. I can imagine some ways you might
have done it but you probably have some better, more efficient way.

My new favorite! This is a great woodworking project. The painted panels are so much like the movie original. It looks like the pugnale or dagger is attached to the lid in the original and withdraws from the heart when opened. The only problem with that is "it won't work in reality" as the lid swings in an arc and the pugnale needs to be withdrawn vertically.
