I am a woodworker and the woods they are quoting will be fairly heavy, and I see issues with button access. Its certainly one of the nicer looking cases, but I dont think it would be for me.

The hardwoods are heavy but necessary to prevent warping and all the dings a heavy use brings. The Zebrano is definitely not a good choice. Although it's pretty, it warps like crazy.
I did a few boxes for Sony readers a few years back and Zebrano definitely warps enough to make the box unusable.
African mahogany is extremely light but quite soft.
You can see a few pictures on this thread.

I'm planning a more functional box than this one for my personnal use. It will be veneered birch plywood with applewood!:p
