Hope Chest

This is a pair of heirloom hope chests commissioned by a husband/father for his wife and daughter. My client wanted to commemorate the birth of his daughter with something special that she will keep for her lifetime, and also to make a matching smaller version for his wife. He wanted these chests to be visually stunning and also to last a lifetime. To personalize the chests, he wanted to feature plaques carved with his wife and daughters' initials and the date he presented these special gifts.

The chests are made with premium curly cherry and figured maple. All the wood came from the same trees and feature wraparound grain, ogee bracket feet, aromatic cedar floors, and sand-shaded fan inlays on the lids. One chest includes a removable jewelry box. The larger chest is 40 inches wide x 20 inches deep x 22 inches tall; the smaller chest is 36 inches wide by 18.5 inches deep x 20 inches tall. These chests can be made to order and customized to meet your specific requirements.

From my client: "I just wanted to thank you for making these beautiful heirloom chests for my daughter and I. They're works of art!"
