Here are photos of two of the last three boxes that could be used for ladies as well as a gentleman. Both measure 15.5”x 8.5”x 4” and a lift out tray, the first one is Maple and Leopard Wood which originates from Central and South America. The second is made from Maple and Sapele a African Mahogany, I have two of them. I have them listed on Etsy.com my store is PrairieViewWoodShop if anyone is interested. The finish is numerous coats of satin polyurethane buffed then waxed. Thanks for taking the time to look.

Awesome wood choices!

It must have been quite difficult to get those crisp edges on the top bevel.
