23. Lining:
There are basically three types of liners you might use. 1. Paper (wallpaper or antique newspaper). 2. Cloth (cotton, velvet, linen, etc.). and 3. Wood, most notably, cedar. Paper: Go to your nearest wallpaper supply store and you will find somewhere in the back of the store an "overstock or closeout" section. This is where you will find the least expensive selection of liner material. You can usually find something suitable in this section for less than $10 for a double roll. Otherwise you may have to pay two, three, or even four times that if your tastes are not met. Your first choice is paper with no vinyl. Vinyl surfaces tend to come up when they are overlapped. We find some papers that evokes the image of the era when the trunk was made. This is somewhat arbitrary and it really boils down to a matter of personal choice unless you are refinishing a trunk for a customer. Even then it's still personal choice. Just not yours. If you can't find a no vinyl paper go for vinyl coated rather than solid vinyl. Line up all your lining tools. A square, two foot straightedge, utility knife, tape measure, sharpening stone, large sponge, a couple of large flat surfaces, one for rolling out, measuring, and cutting the liner and the other for pasting up and folding over the liner. You will also want a damp cloth, a pair of scissors, and plenty of light. You will line the trunk in this order. The ends of the trunk body, the back, front, bottom, ends of the lid,..
