My first big project it won a best in state at the Texas TSA state competition so i’m really happy :) I got the plans from rockler along with all the hardware. I used red oak with walnut “straps” and corner guards. The finish is just a spray on krylon clear lacquer.

What a great Trunk.

What is the size, what kind of wood did you use and what did you finish it with.
