This trunk was listed a few weeks back since then I've been playing with it.
(Minwax ) Red chestnut stain is the finish on the base color the black you see is me burning a few embossments into the wood The end burnings are inspired from cartoon pictures of a Jenny lines embossments in a trunk book.Clear shellac was used so far over certain sections of the design. The back bottom slat and bottom of the trunk are covered in a Tar like substance that doesn't want to come off. Paint remover won't pull it. A few hundred brass nails/and tacks were applied. Replaced leather handles and stapes. Still Waiting on the buckles and leather lock cover.
Time to start the interior /Need to build compartments and a good tray.
May take a while .will post more pics of interior when done.
