This is a sewing case I did for a friend of mine. It's made almost exclusively in wood (mahogany and pine), except for the hinges and locks. The design works a lot with basic contrasts, dark/light, open/closed, outside/inside, soft/hard etc. and most of it was thought out as it was being built. The primary tools used for doing this were a table saw and a power router.
Sorry for the crappy picture quality
