As I said in my previous post, I love to work with wood. After having some experience with reupholstery, I can honestly say I will make another trunk before I have to reupholster a sofa. I still love reupholstery, but with woodworking you can go straight into creating--there is no prepping stage. With reupholstery, the prepping stage cannot be avoided. Removing old, dirty, stained fabric and dealing with a million staples adds another step--and not an easy one-- before I can get to the fun part and start transforming a furniture piece. I guess I am just a little impatient, and woodworking gets me to the end much faster than I can with reupholstery.
If you are on the look out for a storage chest/trunk that will serve as a coffee table, or just storage for the end of your bed, stay tuned for a new store in town that will open at the end of this month. My trunks will be sold at this unique store, and I cannot wait for you to see them in person.
This trunk was built with maple hardwoods and pine.
Every trunk will be beautiful and different. I will be trying different stains, colors, and hardware to make them special and not the cookie cutter type. On this particular one I used a custom finish for the stain--dark walnut with some other hand applied colors to give the finish some depth.
I paid special attention to the handles, back hinges, and front latch.
It is a beautiful piece.
I almost do not want to get rid of it, but you can only have so many storage trunks in a house
before it starts to look ridiculous. Lol!
This is a BRAND-NEW item and up for grabs. Nothing old or refurbished was used on this baby. I carefully selected all the wood and hardware to build it just for you.
So, what are you waiting for? =-)
