Inspiration for this chest came from Popular Woodworking Magazine, I used walnut with holly for the lines and pine for the berries. All dovetails are hand cut, secondary woods are maple, pine and oak, the inside of the top is lined with cotton fabric and the small box is lined with felt. The finish is linseed oil and 3 coats of shellac. This project was challenging but also a lot of fun. Thanks for looking.
