Made with #1 pine and 3 coats of Tung Oil rubbed in by hand. Inside is lined with felt. Mirror on inside of lid. Hooks under mirror to hang chains & neck jewelry on, They hang down in back of the small bins on top and the drawer on the bottom. They do not get tangled hanging like this. When the top is closed the drawer is locked.
