This box is made of solid Santos Mahogany with a maple inlay.
The inside is flocked with a velvet texture and some areas of wood are intentionally left unfinished. This wood constantly releases a fragrance of cinnamon that can’t be missed every time the box is opened.
The box pictured is 12 inches by 7 1/2 inches by 7 1/2 with brass jewelry hinges and flocked with a wine color.

It smells great but the dust will destroy your sinuses and throat. Always use a dust mask or respirator while cutting or sanding.
