This handsome mission style hope chest was custom made in my shop. It was constructed of sapele and birch. Sapele is a rich wood very similar in quality, warmth and color to mahogany. The interior is lined with solid aromatic cedar. The hardware is antique brass. It is built to last many generations. The chest measures 42" long x 21" deep x 22 ½" high making it a perfect size for storing keepsakes, blankets, and extra clothing. The cedar lining will ensure items are well preserved.
The chest is finished with multiple coats of varnish. No stains are used. The warm contrasting colors are natural to the wood species.
My hope chests are custom made items. They can be made in many different species of wood. The size can be altered and we can work together on a different style if you wish. There are also many different styles and types of hardware including locks and latches.
