Silver chest

This is a silver chest that I made for my wife for Christmas. It is made from wood that I got from a pallet. I think that it is Lacey Oak. It has a cluster of grapes inlaid on the top. Grapes are kingwood and the leaves are wenge. The corners are mitered and splined with cocobolo. Finished with Tung oil
