A few years ago my wife had made the comment that she wished there was some sort of a heirloom she could pass on to her daughter and grand daughter. I came up with the idea of giving her a trunk for a Christmas present. I knew there were certain items that she wanted them to have. There was her jewelry, some nick-nacks, a few old books, her trade card collection, old photos, small antique collectables, a quilt and poetry she had written in her younger years. My wife has always liked angels, dragon flies and humming birds. So I had an inmate make the wood burnings for the lid. The trunk is made of red oak and finished with watco oil and wax. She loved it and said it was a perfect heirloom to pass on!
