I got the 4-tray version. The wood type is unspecified but is a softwood with dove-tailed jointing. The combination makes the box both light in weight but strong in construction. There are two types of compartment layout in the trays but the depth of all trays are slightly over 2cm [a little over 3/4 inch]. The trays are comb-jointed and with plywood bases. The box fastening catches feel secure although it is not clear that they are brass - as opposed to brass-coloured. But there is no doubt that the overall quality of the box is very satisfactory.

Superb quality, well designed and functional.Lightweight for transportation,and protects the fragility of the pastels perfectly. Very happy with this product and would highly recommend. Gillian Coates (Sunderland, United Kingdom) on 25 Sep 2012
