I was recently updating a family history book by including some pictures of a trunk that belonged to my wife’s mother, which we had refinished many years ago. This caused me to turn to the internet and do some research to learn more about her trunk. Seeing all those wonderful refinished trunks, many on this site, sparked a desire to see what I could find out there for sale. I found many large sized trunks, some refinished, and most overpriced for my taste. Then I saw a Jenny Lind in need of some tender loving care. After a few texts and settling on a price, the wife and I were in the car, off to acquire a new project. I’m spending time now to develop a plan, to purchase some hardware that supports the plan, and waiting for retirement (which will be soon). Then when warm weather returns, the refinishing transformation of what I now just call “The Trunk” will begin!
