Here is a box that will have many uses.Its made using Cocobola, Beechwood, Macasar Ebony and Leopardwood with maple miter splines. There is a finger notch carved on the front of the box so as to allow you easy open and close. The box is 7 1/2 x 3 1/4 x 1 3/4 inches. Using higher end exotic hard woods may cost alot more. There is no denying just how great they all look when there used in this way ! I used cork feet to keep the box from scraching anything that you might put it on. I know there are a lot of uses for this particular box . So to the purcheser of this box you sure are getting a good and beautiful one. I also applied 5 coats of high gloss Lacquer witch will protect it for many years to come.
