My first was a small barrel stave trunk that my great, great-grandmother brought to Ohio from Germany in 1858.

I'm also an avid quilter. (Read more)

  5. Very nice, Trunkman. I removed canvas from a trunk, and I know how tedious it can be. I love the look of the wood. You always do such a beautiful job.
  6. I really like what you did with your W&G treadle base. It's good that you had drawers to add to it. I makes a very nice looking computer desk. Great job!
  7. Thanks, Trunkman. :)
  8. I like that you did let it have an aged look. I recently refinished the cabinet and base for my 100 year old Singer treadle machine. I didn't want it to look new, just better. As always, you did a ...
