Carcass is Peruvian Walnut with Maple featherslips.  Top lid is Maple with Ebony handle, which is attached with wood dowels.  Front decoration is semi-inlaid river rock, glued in with CA.  Inside floor is black velour wrapping cardboard.  Oak ply for a bottom.  Tung Oil finish with Goddards Paste Wax finish.  I enjoyed making this box.  Dramatic look.
