Steamer Trunk – Oak

Trunk_SteamerThis classic steamer trunk design by Rockler is as sturdy as it is beautiful.  It features brass plated steel hardware, leather lift handles, a spring trunk lock, bail latches, and 95° stopped hinges.  The lift-out tray allows easy access to the bottom compartment.  Use it for general storage, as a hope chest, blanket chest, or foot locker.
