The lid is made of a cherry panel with a centre insert of walnut, maple, walnut, maple, walnut interleaving. The maple is spalted wormy maple and as it turns out had an element of "curl". The original plan was altered to give it a slightly oriental flavour. The proportions were subtly altered, and in particular the top was changed as was the hinge style.
