Upcycled Wooden Shoebox In Barn Wood And Purpleheart

I love using purpleheart in my creations because the deep color of the wood gives a lovely burst of color to any piece I make. For this piece, I used several strips of barn wood to give it a textured look. One strip of purpleheart was all I needed to make the box "pop" with modern elegance. I assembled the wooden pieces using traditional joinery to give the piece a more rustic effect. I applied a coat of Danish oil and Minwax to the piece for a natural-looking sheen. This lovely show box measures 10" x 10" x 3".

    Terry is a fantastic craftsman. He took a look at some boxes that were ridiculously overpriced online (and not available in the US at any price) and replicated them (with his own spin). Better, cheaper, faster. Excellent communication, so incredibly cooperative. After he finished, he sent a photo. I suggested a small change -- he remade the entire thing. In a day. "I want you to be happy." Terry's the real thing. I gave 5 stars because they don't have 6.
