Happy 75th Birthday Dad! Cherry frame, birdseye maple panels and top, aromatic cedar bottom, sanded to 15000 grit, finished in 3 coats of tung oil. Feels smooth as silk. Inside tray is cherry with leather lining. Solid brass stop hinges hold top open at 95 degrees. All raised panels cut in sequence from a single board so grain appear to wrap around box, inside and out. Inlay is gaboon ebony and is the Chinese character for my family name.
