Purpleheart and Cherry Box

Purpleheart is a difficult wood to work.  It is brittle, has large pores and leaves purple dust everywhere;  nonetheless, there is nothing like the surprise when I tell someone that the wood is not dyed: that's just the colour of it.  I have a friend who absolutely hates purpleheart.  As a result I have salvaged quite a bit from his 'burn bin.'  I'll be able to keep using it for boxes or accents for some time. Instead of using purpleheart for the lid I used it for the body of the box and chose cherry for the lid. Price $40.00
