  3. Nice find! Awesome trunk & very interesting about the hinges for sure!!
  4. I think it’s amazing! You really know how to turn them out. Thanks Brian!
  5. Im4anythingOld -- I appreciate the comments. You must be 0n some kind of dial-up connection! I don't envy you that! All images seem to load fast and fine for me regardless of size. I'll try to kee...
  6. I can't wait to see what you do on the interior!
  7. I told Bryan that this thing would take me five years to restore if I was going to do it myself if — that is if it ever got done at all!!! He was kind enough to offer to look at it and see what he th...
  8. Thanks Elliott!
  9. Thanks Ben!!
  10. Thank you bjb5859! I’m sorry I don’t know your name, but I am familiar with your fine work! I have spent a fair amount of time admiring a lot of your trunks! Your interiors are also very nicely d...
  11. Thanks Drill, I appreciate the words of encouragement, you know I’m a fan of your fine work as well!
  12. Thanks guys! I appreciate the comments! It was a lot of fun, looking forward to the next one!
  13. Hey man -- happy i could help out! It was way too far away from me, but I agree -- its in a lot better condition than what it initially appeared to be! As usual, I can't wait to see what you turn ...
  14. Nice to see the final product, and it looks totally amazing!! The lock turned out beautifully!! Awesome job!! Love the trunk!
  15. Thanks for sharing Drill! That’s a lot of time spent making each and every square look amazing!
  16. Wow — I just looked at both the before and after pics again! What a transformation! I’m cute you’ve covered this before Drill, but what tools do you use to drill/ burn the wood? Your patterns look ...
  17. I will post a pic on my board of the internals. Good luck!
  18. That lock is actually very easy to pick. You just need a barrel key that fits it. Rotate the key clockwise. There aren’t any actual “tumblers”, just a spring loaded mechanism.
  19. Beautiful Martin Maier Trunk! I have the same exact trunk, except with alligator embossed tin. Your floral pattern is very nice, and the trunk seems to be in excellent condition! Thanks for sharing!!
  20. Thanks for the comments! I'll keep you in mind Brian!! One of these days I need to get to work on this one!
  21. That is the best interior I have ever seen! Love the colors!!
  22. Very nice looking trunk!!
  23. Follow up question — is that metal running on top of the slats? Very cool!
  24. Very nice! Can’t wait to see you work your magic on it!
  25. What an awesome piece, and a small one at a fantastic price to boot! Great find Brian!
  26. Looks amazing! I’m still working on figuring out the exterior, let alone the interior!!
  27. Wow — thanks for sharing all that information!! Where do you find all this stuff?!? Lol. Yes the Clinton hinge does appear to be very similar to the Excelsior that you shared. So much history! ...
  28. Hmm, so deliberate concealment of a reproduction, or just a random chance. Thanks for the info. Does anyone have any thoughts on the big one? I know my grandfather believed both to be the re...
  29. Thanks for all the kind words! Making some progress, hopefully in the next couple weeks I'll be done restoring this one.
  30. If you’d rather call my cell is 801-369-6230 Thanks — hopefully someone sees this - I realize this post was 4 years ago
  31. I’ve seen a lot of trunks that have been cleaned up, but what you did here is amazing. Would you mind Shapiro gnhow you so thoroughly cleaned the tin?
  32. wow drill. thanks for all the info about the Romadka Brothers! what an amazing read!
  33. Amazing work on both inside and outside! I can't believe how good you are at making these look brand new! Who am I kidding, it probably didn't look this good when it was brand new!
  34. They are pretty cool
  35. one of my favorite styles!! Nice trunk
  36. Ok, this one is probably my favorite one of your greendog. Its the slat clamps that does it for me. They look templar-esque, and super cool. Any idea who made this trunk? This is what I am looking...
  37. wow amazing!
  38. Super cool restoration, you have a talent!
  39. Do you have some kind of a restoration shop green dog?
  40. I am brand new to the world of these wonderful old chests and want to buy and restore a few. As you are obviously the master, any resources/ articles you could point me towards? BTW this piece is on...
