Update #1 Schmidt Mandell Studio is interested in your CustomMade project

Hi Jeffrey,
Are you referring to the trunk I am making for a client? If so, I can do this for you, but I am afraid the cost is $500.. I am enclosing this image for your approval. If all of this is fine with you, I will send a proposal...and yes, Jeffrey, I would love to work with you...thank you for considering us, Maggie

The colors look great. My oldest son is 22 and my youngest son is 19...
They are completely opposite in personality but best friends. Jimmy is a mechanic, he has a lot of me in him and look just like my dad, He is a hard worker, he loves cars, he can not stand people who do not use logic, he has a heart of gold and children naturally go to him. Jimmy could care less about a fashion trend or what in style, he is like every thing is covered....I'm good.
Jon is a leader but follows the crowd and goes to the front...he would never by school clothes until after the first day of school, to see what everyone was wearing, then he would want to go get it all he is very athletic plays goalie in Lacrosse and soccer, he is taller then I am and is really thin, but that is because he is in the Army ROTC at his college, he is on a full scholarship for the ROTC Nursing program, Jon is following mom as a nurse and me as a service member, He likes children but its not the same as Jimmy. Jon is very very book smart, loves reading and writing where Jimmy rather use his hands to fix things, Jon learns from books Jimmy learns from life. My self my Master is in Technoloy education, there isn't too much I can not fix, I restore old weapon and armament bringing back the glory of some of these items. I look forward to seeing the trunk! I attached a gun I did it was made in 1891 but looks as good as new to me.

The truck is amazing, and I am sure you will add even more too it, it is karma, I just finished an amazing Mosin Nagant 91/30 Russian WWII rifile for by best friend....he actually screamed when he saw it....then you show me this trunk the same day...Karma....even Roger was happy

Update #6 Pictures of the outside of trunk

I sure hope you like it Jeffrey. I have decided to paint the inside a lighter color, off white, so you can see what is in the trunk better. I don't think it would be a good idea to paint it the dark green...If you disagree, please let me know right away. The inside of the doors when they are flipped up are green and rust.
Will weigh it today and give you a final edited proposal that includes the exact shipping cost...thanks , I hope you are having a good day, Maggie

Update #8 Trunk

Good Morning Jeffrey,
Just letting you know the trunk was picked up yesterday and is on its way. I would guess you would get it next Tuesday or Wednesday. Let me know, please, when it arrives. I just saw for the first time in our correspondence your beautiful dog. I have two dogs, who are not as stately as your, an in all probability not as smart...but I love them all the same. It is possible you may be charged a brokerage fee, probably 30 dollars for customs...Some times they charge and some times they don't. I have no idea how they figure the price. My other client who had a simillar trunk had a 34.dollar fee upon delivery...Hope you love the trunk...Have a happy easter or happy passover. which ever the case may be...Mostly have a great spring...I think it is about time for all of us. Winter has been way too long...Maggie now getting ready for spring planting.
