My wonderful husband had this made for me for my birthday. It is mainly made of solid Rosewood .
It is 100 % wood except for the knobs. No screws,nails, etc.,The man that made it hand crafted every inlay and assembled every piece by hand. It is the most magnificent birthday gift I had ever received. It holds all the DMC floss with ease. It has a gold plate that says: "To Patti Love, Bob" under the lid.
