Incra Box joinery, African Mahogany and Bigleaf Maple primary woods. Shopmade Maple/Walnut inlay banding. Interior panel that holds the lid up is unfinished Spanish Cedar, for a pleasing aroma when opened. 9”x6”x5-ish” Garnet and Ultra Blonde shellac and wax finish.

Just a quickie post. This one is heading out the door tomorrow for a new home in my birth city, Topeka, KS.
