Handmade Keepsake box I made for my Fiance for our first Christmas together. All joinery is hand cut dovetails. I painstakingly felt-lined the interior with velvet and used a crushed velvet trim piece to cover edges at the top of the box. Locking mechanism works perfectly. Made from Purpleheart paired with domestic walnut for a gorgeous contrast. Finished with plain tungoil. CHISEL WORKERS BEWARE purpleheart is one tough sob on your edges!

Design or Plan used: My own design
