This is a Crawford style box done in bubinga veneer with purpleheart and yellowheart banding and fans. This was my first time using bubinga, it was very hard wood, difficult to cut and chipped easily and hard enough that you did not feel you would sand through the veneer very easily. The hardness also made it easy to bring it up to a fine polish. The interior tray is a very white poplar with a turned knob, the box is lined with dark blue velvet, and on the lid of course is the egyptian.
