This trunk is red oak with walnut trim. The inside box and top are lined with cedar veneer, which I cut on the table saw/band saw. The top straps are bent using laminated veneer formed and glued with plastic resin glue. The top is made with pine arch structure, with 1/8” baltic birch plywood bent over it to get the curve, then oak veneer on top of the plywood. The inside lid also has a baltic birch base bent on the underside of the arch structure wth the cedar veneer glued to it. The light buttons are birch, the dark are walnut.

The project is for a fund raiser for a local no-kill humane society (TAILS).

Really, really beautiful. Did you make all those buttons yourself? That’s a lot of work…
