I’ve been holding out on posting this because my camera went on the fritz. They don’t build them like they used to. Unlike this trunk which with reasonable care will likely outlast all of us. Nothing extraordinary here. No plans. Just a solid red oak box and some joinery and trim. The splines in the corners of the top and base are walnut. The tray bottom made from aromatic red cedar. Dimensions are 18” x 36” x 18”. I made the trim of the lid to wrap over the top edge of the box to seal it somewhat and keep the cedar smell in the box. I wanted real bad to do a marquetry inlay or carve something on the front, but I just ran out of time.
She loved it, by the way.
