I really love the way this spalted wood look. I just wish I could get some more but there was only one board of it. The Lid is made from Purpleheart and the tray and bottom are lined with Linchen Suede material. I also made a ring bar. It good if you have thin ring shanks. I am a jeweler so I pulled out my rings only to find my wide bands would have to be forced in it. I guess next time I will build some narrow height trays 3/4” with like 1 1/2” divides in it for rings to lay down.

Beautiful Box!
The limba is gorgeous and the craftsmanship is very excellent. Very nice and clean joinery and that allows the great contrast of the woods to be showcased.
Wonderful work.
