I liked this one so much I kept it for myself :) It took me a minute to complete, the feet were challenging to get cut and mitered to fit on the sides. It has a tray with a slightly curved handle and sets on thin pieces of maple inset into the box. The lid, lid handle and feet are all Honduran Rosewood and the box is Maple.
