These Tough Chests are an beautiful way to to store and and protect unreplacable items. They are designed to be extremely strong, yet eye appealing enough to be proudly displayed in any room. These chests come in Southern Yellow Pine, Red Oak, and Quarter Sawn White Oak on the outside. The layers under the wooden shell provide protection from almost any type of intrusion. The layers consist of your choice of wood for the outer shell, a thin 1/8" sheet of rubber, a 1/16" sheet of plate steel, a 1/4" layer of foam insulation, and a 3/4" layer of cedar. These combined layers will last for years and years to come.
