      Drill, very interesting and beautiful work. You may know this, but the G & S is Goldsmith & Son or Newark, NJ. I have one of their catalogs from 1900 that shows this type trunk. It's great when a trunk has an original label that also gives you more information about the construction and materials. Basswood was used in many high quality trunks and some used hickory for slats, but most people will automatically say the trunk slats are oak. But oak was rarely used as trunk slats, it was usually elm, ash, and hickory. Thanks!

      Yes Marvin, that I did know. Jim and I had spoken as to my suspicions of the G.S. Label when I first started that trunk project,He did confirm it for me. I had known about the lumber by reading one of your responses to someone's inquiry on Ask the Experts, I believe.I have followed your writings for some time.
      Oak was the premium grade (expensive lumber)This is why many manufacturers stated Hardwood slats instead of a specific lumber (Some did state the type of lumber used though). It is always nice to clarify it for others from time to time.thanks!
