This box with threaded lid started with African Blackwood. Then a thin layer of Holly was wrapped around the exterior, glued, and turned down to a thickness of 0.030”. A cylinder of African Blackwood was hollowed to fit over the Holly, glued, and turned down to a thickness of 0.020”. The keyboard pattern was cut through the exterior black layer and into the holly on an ornamental lathe (that I built myself). Additional ornamentation was cut on the top of the box and inside the box with the ornamental lathe.
