The piece of wood I had for the top was nice and thick so I was able to sculpt out the curves a good deal and leave well defined ridges between them.
This piece is unstained and finished with a super-blonde shellac. The handles are cocobolo with the squarish pieces pegged horizontally into the box top and a wedged triangular piece connecting them.
The entire piece is made from Leopardwood. I had some flatsawn wood that I used for the box bottom and the tray bottom. The rest is all quartersawn. The box measures about 8"w x 11" l x 5" h and it's very heavy.
