I just finished a new box. It's Claro Walnut with curly maple interior and accents. I inlaid the top with a Turkish walnut book-matched veneer. I also lined the top and bottom with pig skin suede. The hinges and lid support are from Brusso, and the full mortise lock is a "Smartlock" from Smartboxmaker.com. I must say this lock is a thing of beauty. It is precisely machined and an absolute breeze to install (router table), albeit a tad expensive. I finished the box with 2-3 coats of Odie's Dark oil.
