Made this for my son’s 30th birthday.

The ends are 3/4” maple, sides are 1/2” maple, bottom is 1/4” baltic birch plywood, 1 inch dowel for the handle and I turned the handle ends out of maple. Finished it with shellac (I was running out of time!!!).

ALl glued together, no metal.

All the maple came from an end table that was being thrown out by a friend.
