    A lovely excelsior oak slat trunk -- only -- well, someone added a bit of colour along the way.... sigh. Good news is that I now have a summer project! So I picked up my five gallon bucket of furniture stripper and am about to gleefully begin bringing her back to life. Now I can strike Excelsior Oak Slat off my trunk bucket list....
    On my way already -- the fourth pic represents about an hour and a half of stripping down... coming along nicely...

      This will look beautiful once you get the paint off. I will never understand why people think painting a trunk is a good idea, especially a beautiful slat trunk. In this case they went overboard doing the wood and metal, they must have loved the color. You have already made great progress, I can't wait to see it when you get it finished. I sent you an e-mail with the information you requested, if you don't get it let me know.

      I am in a large city and no one here is willing to give up their Excelsior trunk. Looking through the pictures it appears that there is not any damage anywhere, an amazing find. Cannot wait to see the results once you put your skills to work.
