My wife's grandfather was in WWI and we inherited his officers trunk.
It is a VERY heavy wooden trunk that opens to reveal drawers and a place to
keep your uniform on the inside top lid. Basically, it is in need of restoration...the exterior paint has spill and stains, a few edge boards need replacing due to some garage storage water exposure etc.
Q: Has anyone restored a trunk like piece of furniture before? I can envision
square whiskey slots on the inside.
