Here is the finished product. The steel banding on this Jenny Lind is exceptional. The wood always will have a red hue when it was formerly covered in leather because the colour from the leather seeps into the wood over time. This trunk was pretty easy to refinish as I did not have to tear off any canvas -- what leather was left basically crumbled off. My trunk collection is almost complete -- there are three more styles or types that I am looking for to round out my collection. I will have to build an extension on the house to showcase them...
