I built this "Prayer Box" for my Uncle Harold, who is a retired pastor and missionary. It's a combination of curly maple and purple heart on the outside, with a cross of yellow heart on the inside. The corners are rounded through dovetails and designed to resemble fingers interlocked in prayer. Both crosses are raised (not merely glued on - took some time to perfect this) both inside and out. Wood hinges are purple heart. I enjoyed this project immensely.
