The chestnut briefcase I made earlier turned out so nice, I made another smaller one out of black walnut. The latches and handle are handmade and turned out well. I have not yet finished the inside….don’t know exactly what I want to do yet. The case measures 16″ × 13″ × 3 1/2" and has brass hinges on it. The wood in the sides and the top/bottom is 1/2" thick. Finished with wax, wet sanded and buffed. Thanks for looking.
