Handmade Box / Keepsake in Cherry Wood and Purpleheart Woods
We wanted to create something inspired by old design and classic lines, yet would fit in a modern living space. With a little collaboration, I think we achieved what we were after. We hope you'll agree.
This box was handmade from .5" figured cherry with purpleheart accents. The top is pressure-set and stays closed snugly without need for a hinge, clasp, or magnet. The handle, splines, and sled feet are made from exotic purpleheart. This vessel was assembled using traditional joinery (no screws or nails).
This vessel measures 8 3/8 inches wide by 8 3/8 inches long. It measures 6.75 inches tall. The inner dimensions are 7 5/16" x 7 5/16" and 5 1/8" deep.
It has been sanded to 400-grit smoothness and finished in premium oil based furniture finish.
It would make the perfect gift for that someone who is looking for a one-of-a-kind, unique statement piece.
