First Birthday Box
Maple construction with Purpleheart panels
This was the very first box I constructed.
I drew from my experience with the
to create cut-thru panels from 1/8" Purpleheart. I then
constructed a simple Maple Box with some little brass
hinges with the Panels glued to the outside.
Most of the carving was done with a scroll saw and dremel.
Some of the more detailed portions had to be done by hand, however!
The pattern was morphed from several images I downloaded
from various sites on the net.
This box took me quite a long time to finish, but was
worth every second.
