My wife’s family has an amazing Norwegian “cabin” ( I use that term loosely) that was built in the early ‘50’s on an island off the coast of Maine. It is quite a magical place filled with carving very where, a sod roof and lots of antiques. One of the pieces I’ve always admired is a trunk that is used to store spare bedding.
The basic dimensions are: 40” long, 18” high with 7 1/4” legs I believe added later, and 20 1/2” front to back. The boards are approx 7/8” thick . A 1” crown to the lid. Mitered dovetailed corners with a spacing about 3”
Now I’ve been a fan of almost all things Norwegian for a long time, I really admire their wooden boats, woodcarving, knife making to mame a few. My wife is half Norwegian, her mother grew up in Oslo and this fall she was excited to find this so She sent us a couple of cans. Bless her heart.
I finally found something Norwegian I’m not fond of.
