The case is made from american walnut ,curly maple and topped with a beautiful burl (I WAS GIVING THE VENEER AND IM REALLY NOT SURE WHAT KIND OF BURL IT IS =)). The case is lined with green velvet and finished to a mirror like gloss of poly .Polished Nickel Finish hinge . I did burn thru the veneer on a spot on the top and tried my best at fixing it …it came out ok but of course i see it =).
