    Seller's response
    Thank you very much Patrice! Rosewood is a rare and very hard wood. Normally, it would be difficult to use it for lids (it is not flexible, so it is easy to break if thinned), but it has become possible by pasting the sliced rosewood on plywood. Thank you always for your wonderful messages!
