Used a coat of Golden Oak Stain mixed with Tung Oil, then about 3 coats of brushed satin urethane. I did the mink oil on the leather edges and handles are original - bit rustic but wood is nice and smooth - sits exactly 21 inches from bottom so sitting on a couch is a perfect height. I really like the finished product. The leather is spotty in some parts, but that adds to vintage charm - after all it is over 100 years old. Neat brass tag on front that reads Fred'K Loeser & Co., Trunk Department, Brooklyn, NY.
