Steamer trunk

Trunk woodworking project
Curved top steamer trunk

This trunk was made from plans (and hardware) purchased from the Woodworkers Journal magazine publication called Today’s Woodworker Issue 29.




You can also find it and other trunk projects in our online store here. You can find trunk hardware here.

The materials used were solid red oak and 1/4 inch oak panels. The straps were stained in a walnut color and the whole project was given several coats of polyurethane. A very time consuming project but well worth it. It still draws the most attention from visitors at our house.
