Most of the smell goes away over time but in the case of a sealed up box there will always be some remaining varnish odor that will be absorbed into the quilts.

The interior would best be raw wood. You could probably get good results if you lined the interior of the box with raw cedar. You can buy it in 1/4' thick 4' x 8' sheets for a reasonable amount.
