At one time, apprentice carpenters built their own tool box as a right of passage. We run across lots of them. Some are very well made. Thinking that this was a tool box, we were delighted to find out that it wasn't. This gorgeous wooden trunk was languishing in the corner of our favorite haunt with a covering of dust and at least ten axes stored in it, handles up. The proprietor happily emptied it and drug it out for us to peruse..... it was love at first sight. Quality construction, beautifully aged, and flawless hardware. This very functional trunk will look good anywhere in your home. Sold!
