Honduras rosewood, Bleached maple burl

Some pieces of wood are so great that I save them for a special work. Such is this beautifully figured Honduras rosewood (Dalbergia stenensonii) which is rare, as is the color, a rich brown with a touch of blue.
The piece I had is lare enough for two boxes and this is the first. It is thickly veneered and laminated to a base of cherry.
The top is a bleached maple burl that is only lightly finished so that the texture of the burl stands out as a marbled effect.
The box is lined with suede leather and finished with a gloss urethane to the point where most of the grain is filled, but not all.
