This trunk is constructed of oak walnut and goncalo alves wood. The inlays are all goncalo alves wood, it has pinned box joints which I used 3/8” walnut dowels for and it is finished with gloss polyurethane. The front of the lid has a V shaped inlay, it is copper wire layed in the cutout then filled with epoxy along with the knot hole too and sanded flat. The trunk measures 36”wide, 18”deep, 14”tall.

I don’t think there are enough superlatives available to really convey how beautiful this chest is.
