DesignCombining form and function, our clam-shell wooden hard wood cases are a joining of transportability and usability. Each half of every piece is CNC-milled from a single piece of Red Cherry or Black Walnut hardwood. After milling, the wood is carefully routed along the edges at a 45 degree angle and the screw holes are countersunk. Each case is finely hand sanded until the wood has a smooth texture, then the wood is cleaned and coated. Two coats of ultra-clear semi-gloss lacquer are applied to the work after it has been prepared, and then it is sanded with ultra fine sandpaper to flatten out any uneven material. Finally it is coated again with a heavy layer of lacquer to provide a lasting and beautiful finish. Every case is given a full 24 hours to let the coating cure before being shipped out.

Due to the nature of wood, the color, grain, and overall appearance of the pieces can vary greatly. Even within the same species of wood this occurs, so the pictures provided a
