Woodworker: Chuck Zeller
Inspired by old camel-back steamer trunks, Zeller decided to learn steam-bending and re-create the luggage as furniture. This white-oak chest is 20 in deep by 36 in. wide by 28 in. tall. The case is joined with a modified box joint, and the compound curve of the lid required a separate form for each piece. In keeping with the original trunks, the interior is lined in a heavy brocade fabric. Subtle distressing and a blend of waxes give the chest its antique look.
