I built this early because of the wood shop closing on base. today was the last day. It is solid wood no plywood. All the brass is solid 1/8th thick. It was also my first trunk.

Very nice trunk! Did you come up with your own design / blue prints? I have not decided if I want to build my own or have it out sourced? Are there any tips you can give?
