I was given a fan of Black Coral by a sailing friend. Black Coral is rare and only found at depth.
We had some bamboo left over from a bathroom remodel. That was used for the box. The bottom is 1/4” painted plywood and fixed in place. The glass slides in from the top. The fan is attached with red wire ties of all things. Finished with clear lacquer from a rattle can.

By the way Bamboo is very nice to work with. #2-4 Taken with flash. Therefore not shadows.

#1 Shadows turned on.

Fantastic build. And yes Black Coral is extremely rareto be gotten by SCUBA diver since that in the Indio-Pacific Guam and neighbors have it below 200 feet.
