Steamer Trunk | New Yankee Workshop
On this episode of New Yankee Workshop
Long after the last steamship sailed its last voyage, Norm sets out to build a New Yankee Workshop version of the rounded-top steamer trunk.
Once used to store clothes for ship passengers, these trunks are still very popular among antique collectors.
Today they are much admired by those who use them at the foot of beds for blanket and linen storage. Norm built his from antique chestnut and hammered iron strips that mimic the original trunk hardware.
