An absolute beauty. The craftsmanship is superb and all three woods come together in perfect harmony. I used thicker stock for this box to give it a sturdier look. The buckeye burl is bookmatched on top and creates a stunning visual. The purple heart was chosen for its color to add a little contrast to the piece and it worked out incredibly. This is a gorgeous box that will last generations. The boxes outside measurements are 16 x 9 x 5 and inside are 12 and a half inches x 5 and 3 quarter inches x 3 inches deep giving plenty of room for jewelry. I finished the box in gloss spray lacquer and flocked with black fibers.
