10-3/4" x 7-1/2" x 2-3/8"

Kamagong wood, East Indian rosewood, bird's eye maple, golden Ceylon satinwood

Finish - Urethane high gloss finish

Brass hinges

Dark Burgundy Velvet

Kamagong wood (Camagon in Spanish) is only found in the Philippines and is rarely exported.  It' s a fruit tree that produces an edible fruit called mabalo.

The Japanese used to make weapons with it because it is extremely hard and dense.

Because of its rarity, many other woods are often falsely labeled as Kamagon. This box is made of the real thing.

Very dark brown with black and purple overtones, I combined it with a high contrast top of East Indian rosewood, bird's eye maple and a touch of golden Ceylon satinwood at the center.

I didn't round over the top edges as I usually do, thinking the angular look in this case looked better.

Finished with water-based acrylic, I didn't fill the grain with finish as I usually do but left it prominent. Because I could only obtain very small pieces of this wood, the box is 1/8? thick veneer laminated over cherry.

Bottom is lined with dark burgundy velvet.
