Inspired by Martyn’s briefcase. Made from Hard maple, peruvian walnut, and the handle is zebra wood. Brass hardware and lined with some fabric that I thought would look nice. I really like how it turned out. Though I feel as something is missing. If you know please share. The decorative dovetails were a last minute decision to do before assembly started. It is a fairy large case at 18×24 but I’m a fairly large guy. The maple is six panels for each side. Cut in half from 3/4 and then planed to 3/16 then bookmatched and joined. Thanks for looking.

Needs a couple of interior dividers in the lid. That what you thought was missing?

How sweet it is! Nice project and contrasting woods with colorful fabric inside! Next time, I suggest you use a lighter color background.

Now that is something a bit special. Love the dovetails into the sides. The lively inside really goes well too.
Thanks for the mention and for posting, Edward.
