Staterooms styles


Jason Schleisman

Oh, and I believe the name for the style of the quilts is "eiderdown". A provision list called for "800 Eiderdown quilts". These generally hailed from the Northern countries, especially Scandinavia.

Thank you Jason. You're a genius. I appreciate all your information. I was just pricing the wood for the paneling in B59 and it may cost me a fortune just for that. Then I have to make the bed. Oh, and by the way I am a beginner woodworker. This should be fun since I'm also a perfectionist. Yikes.

Ha! Have fun!

Hi everyone,
I'm still working on remodeling my guest room after cabin B59 on Titanic. Right now I'm working on how much paneling I will need to do the room. It's like $30.00 plus for one 8 ft board, so I'm trying to figure out a way to use mouldings to get the effect of the raised panels. I think it may work. Anyway, now I'm wondering if anyone knows how the cabin numbers looked on the outside of the cabin door from the hallway. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks.
