Thanks guys Sorry for the typo in the name but that’s fixed. As to details and what the inside looks like it’s made of Walnut with ash splines. The lid and bottom is i assume 1/4 in birch ply that is held in with stub and tenon type joinery. The Marine emblem is also done in walnut on get this a 25 dollar scroll saw found in a yard sale. the inside is a empty shell as it was for a guy want a very nice shell box, but since we are having a silent auction at work it got donated and if he doesn’t win it then I’M making another. hey guys i check out my next post it’s the same style box with a Army logo on it. Again thanks for the comments

Nice job. The shell case handles were a cool design feature.
