I agree with Paul but it might make a nice gift for a special family member.

LOL

Harry,

It would cost me $450 for the timber I would ruin trying to make it.

I'm in agreement with James, except I would probably be near the 800 dollar mark of destroyed timber before I reached anything close to that. I don't see how he can profit anything by selling that really nice box for just 45 dollars...

My keen eye for under priced stuff leads me to believe it's made in China or some other cheap production country.
No one else could produce it for so little.

Quite obviously from China guys, but doesn't it make you feel sick inside.

Yes.

Note, however, that the ad says it's "stained Maple In color" without saying what material it's actually made of. It could be cardboard covered in shiny paper, or painted MDF.
