The joints in the frame are basic half lap.
The name is routed in using a 6.3mm Round routing bit and background is contrasted in matt black.
The insert trays.
The material is Tasmanian Myrtle and the bases of the trays again lined with burgundy textured vinyl.
The inserts are simple butt joint frames and rounded over at the tops.
The trays at the bottom are one single piece separated into two the centre by a lifting handle.
