figured maple and
- eighteen coats of polished lacquer
hinges of aluminum and brass
13-1/2" x 5-3/4" x 5"
body is fashioned from a rare and beautiful piece
of marbled maple suspended between padauk and aluminum
pilasters and is ultra-suede lined.
Finish is eighteen
coats of polished lacquer. Hinges are hand-made of
aluminum and brass.
This is a significantly larger
version of my earlier Caboose.
The bright red Padauk
will age over time to a dark mahogany color.
Note: In the photos shown here
are both dark and light versions.
The lighter versions
reveal the actual, current color while the darker
versions (taken with less light) bring out the figuring
of the wood.
Over a period of time the red wood will
naturally darken to about what you seen in the darker
pictures at the bottom.
