I apologize for the photos. I’ll have to take more when it’s daylight. This is made out of red oak, walnut, and rosewood. The corners are the rosewood, which I took a close up. It has a couple of layers of soft foam wrapped in brown crushed velvet, then I added the 1 in. thick tool foam for the support. I was tired of having the same plastic carrying case everyone else owned and had some wood laying around. Now I have a one of a kind case along with a great conversation starter.
