I got this Steamer Trunk at a fundraiser for a local high school. After hours of peeling wallpaper off the inside and outside, I refinished the wood and metal with a danish oil type blend. Then, I installed a false floor of tongue and groove cedar about 4” above the bottom to make a space for the electronic components. I cut the bottom panel free with a small kerf Japanese keyhole saw and make a “secret compartment.”
With the whole thing closed up, you have no idea there is a TV in there.

I have friends who do not know I own a TV…please don’t tell.

Sneaky! Pray tell why is it a secret?
