    Next project! A nice example of a Martin Maier alternating slat design trunk from the 1880’s. This one has unusual two lock feature. Waited many years for one to show up in my area! Happy Day!

      Beautiful trunkman! I'm still in search of one of these. Great find.

      Can't wait to see what you do with this!

      Love it Elliot, huge fan of MM, Not seeing it in the usual spot for trunks, nice find, look forward to seeing it when your done.

      OK Elliot I see you got it on the right channel for me anyway, yeah very nice find, have been looking for one like this myself, I would say late 1880's lid lift patented 1886 if I'm not mistaken, it would have been nice if MM would have used higher quality locks all the time, but still a great find, good job, Brian

      Thanks Mike78, facstchr9455 and Greendog for the comments!

      Greendog what two stain colours did you use on your MM?
    7. greendog greendog, 2 years ago
      For the dark I used Minwax dark walnut and the light was just clear finish I use over the entire trunk.
