Great, That is what I was hoping to hear. I felt the same way. I'm sure Robert will like the idea also. However, you are correct it is up to him.
Thanks everyone. If you can't tell. I have something to post. :)

I agree with James, I also think cedars and other chests should go here also the ones like Dianne put up on april 1 in this group,
but it is up to Robert/ Rescuelifeprodcuts as he is the moderator

Oralei ,"Trunks" were made in many shapes and sizes and from various materials. In my opinion cedar chest should belong here, too? Otherwise you end up getting categories spread out too,far? But that is my opinion. It just sounds like part of the "group" to me.
Comment by Oralei on April 4, 2009 at 2:49pm
I have a question. Will this group include things like cedar chest, or chest in general? Perhaps any storage item with a hinged lid? What does everyone think? If no, Where do I post those things? Thanks

Thanks Craig, Dianne

Dianne, I would consider the blue piece photoed a trunk, a crate would be a 1 time shipping unit, this one has a hasp for reuse and lock a crate usually was nailed shut.

When is a trunk a trunk and not a crate or box....is the picture below a trunk?


Comment by Craig Phillips / B & C Emporium on April 1, 2009 at 12:59pm
Barbara, trunks are a little different, they use a special soft nail you have to drive partly thru the box, bend over, drive the rest of the way thru and bend over the balance and stick the point into the wood.
Remember there are lots of trunks around. if this one does not talk to you or say's I have lots of work to be done on me no problem, just pass as their will be another.

I've heard kitty litter will absorb much of the odor. Still need to test it, but makes a little sense.
Comment by Craig Phillips / B & C Emporium on March 31, 2009 at 9:48pm
just like in the fridge, absorb smells, or Kitty litter with the oder absorbing

the bottom can be replaced, is it the inside paper that is flaking off if that no problem, just strip the paper off and replace it with some new fresh victorian prints & borders, the more problems the more work and talent it takes to restore a trunk.
