This classic shaped box is turned from purple heart (Peltogyne spp), which is also known as Amaranth, and features a delicate bead where the lid meets the base. This box features an inlay of yellow cedar burl that was completed using Chris Stott's window technique so it visible on the inside of the lid too. Texturing has been applied the bottom of the box to provide a little surprise when the box is handled. A lacquer finish has been applied to this box to provide protection and enhance the natural depth of the wood. The finish has been buffed to a pleasant shine, but still gives it a natural wood feeling. This box is the perfect place to keep your most precious earrings, cuff links or other keepsakes.
