DescriptionBeautiful Heavy Duty Hand Made Wooden Chest. This heavy duty chest is built to last, with a beautiful slat design, and with the option to have a name carved in the top of the chest.
All of our chests are made from premium hardwood, no plywood or pressboard! We do not stain or paint any of our chests, but apply several finishing coats of lacquer to show off the natural wood grain.
Choose from 4 different woods (shown in the last picture of the listing): Ambrosia Maple, Mahogany, Cherry, and Walnut.
Each chest is hand made.
Exterior Overall: 24" wide - 17" deep - 17" tall
Interior: 19.5" left to right - 13.5" front to back - 15.5" top to bottom
Each box is hand crafted and custom built per your order. The top is hinged with torsion hinges. These hinges operate like a lap top hinge. When opened or closed to a certain point it stays put. We use these safety hinges so little Johnny (or Mom and Dad) don’t get their fingers squished!
Tips for Choosing the Right Wood
~Wood color and grain vary from piece to piece, even wood in the same species.
~Walnut wood, although normally darker, can have lighter contrast and the color can vary greatly.
~Ambrosia Maple wood, also known as Ghost Maple, also has varying color and grain. Although normally light, ambrosia maple wood is known for its dark grain contrasts, adding brown, gray, and bluish highlights to the wood. Ambrosia Maple wood also has worm holes. The worm holes and darker grain highlights come from the Ambrosia Beatle Inhabiting the Tree before it was harvested, hence the name “Ambrosia Maple”.
~Cherry wood and Mahogany wood have the most consistent coloring, although Cherry wood will turn darker over time. Here is a little info for comparing the woods:
