This box exhibits visible strength and beauty.  The distinctive dovetail construction is enhanced by leaving them proud giving it a sculpted look. 

Maple shows its range here with the curly figure and spalted effect.  The top of beautiful Bubinga is accented with an Asian motif handle which has wedged through tenons; this type joinery hardly needs much glue at all being an incredibly strong mechanical joint alone. 

The feet, pinned to the case with blind brass dowels, also of Bubinga gives this piece a light feeling, sure to be an eye catcher on any sideboard or dresser.
