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.
