This is made completely (almost) out of eastern red cedar, except for the lid which is eastern red cedar with a walnut frame, 26×15x19, the lid has a 3/4 in over hang all around except for the back. it was finished with 2 coats of linseed oil on outside (3 on lid) and 1 on the inside.
with maple button caps to cover the screws.
