My nephew got married on Saturday. We gave him and his wife this box for a wedding present. The top is made with Jatoba and Maple with a Mahogany ‘rings’ inlay. The top was also laser engraved by Tim Bateson of Liberty-Laser, near Cincinnati. (I don’t do engraving!)

The sides of the box are Lacewood. The trays are made from Curly Maple and American Cherry.

The Jatoba will turn to a brilliant reddish-brown color after it seasons for a few years.
