This is a rosewood box with a purple heart base. I put a curly maple lid on top, laminated in a piece of cocobolo and made the handle out of ebony. I think the cocobolo was a mistake though. The inlay needed to be something with a more consistent colour the grain in cocobolo doesn’t really work.
Although I really liked the rosewood grain matching around the corner, looks great. The grain even seems to match on the unmatched ends. First time I tried to do it with a mitered corners. Worked out well :)
