    I think you forgot the pictures. Too early for me to be drinking so it's not my vision. Might be the computer.

    Is that what you sell at the ren fests? They look like they are nice. I may have seen them at the fest here, one of the venders had a trunk like that behind his counter.

    These chests get leather covered?

    Very cool!

    Very nice, Chuck. Do you ever do any Viking stuff? My brother-in-law is seriously into Viking re-enactment. (His group has started doing paid gigs for Ikea.)

    Hi Chuck ,
    This is a nice collection of a product with multiple variations. The uses are endless and the introduction of a another medium like the leather and the upholstery as well is a good one. The option to have the wood show is another nice option. Thanks,
