I was commissioned to build this trunk for a Marine Corps Colonel retiring after 30 plus years. Very happy with the way that it came out. The box is made of pine with accenting pieces of walnut, african mahagony, and bloodwood. Incorporated emblems from Battalion 1/9, the Citadel, and Georgia Tech into the lid as well as the Eagle Globe and Anchor on the front of the trunk.
