Solid Wood Briefcase

t is said that first impressions count, this one has done it. It's an all wood briefcase in "Golden Teak" that was a Christmas gift from one of my major hardwoods suppliers in the late 80's, for spending a lot of money (being a good customer). It has held up perfectly.

Very Nice cabinetman

I was looking in a catalog the other day I saw they now sell the handle and the locks to make this type of briefcase plus the inside parts..

Can't wait to see what you come up with

SWEET! Very nice. Is it heavy? I actually see very few briefcases being carried these days as just about everybody carries a laptop anymore and you need lots of room for one of those. I always wondered about an all wood one like that. Used to know a guy who built a z gauge model railroad in one. Pretty cool!

wooden briefcase

This is a very nice vintage briefcase!! I have the exact same briefcase and was wondering if anyone has any information on the item.

The briefcase I have is also missing a hasp. Can anyone recommend somewhere I a may find a replacement hasp?

Thank you for your help.
