Figured camphor with blue alumilite and maple burl pull. The underside of the lid has been textured with the Robert Sorry texturing/spiralling tool. The finish is 12 coats of Starbond CA, wet sanded and buffed. This combo of figure and finish is amazing!

Thats Beautiful.
Aluminite is an epoxy with an additive?
Great piece and the burl is fantastic.
