The fit and finish are high quality. The bottom is of a light plywood. The fasteners are counter sunk, wood plugged and smoothly finished. Wonderful size and quite roomy! There are no lid stays, so, with the lid being fairly heavy, after a few l e t goes, damage should occur. The harware is s t u p i d cheap.
