I have made over fifty trunks similar to this one but this is the first one with inlaid images. Eastern Red Cedar (aromatic) with soft maple inlay. I use the double bevel inlay method which is done using only a scroll saw. I joined the rails using poplar dowels. The top is screwed together and then filled with poplar dowels. Simple brass door hinges flush mounted to the back. No finish on the inside but a wipe on poly on the exterior. The four sixes is the name of, and brand for, a local horse and cattle ranch. 26” long, 15” wide and 18” tall.
Made with 1/2” stock
