This is one I made at the turn of the millenium. The sides are solid Ebony (hand cut dovetails), the front and back are book-matched Bird’s Eye Maple veneered. Brass combination locks and fitments. The inside is leather lined. The handle is an Ebony and Brass sandwich, homemade. Coated in Rustin’s plastic coating for durability.
I still use this when I want to impress, which isn’t as often as it used to be sadly.
