Hope Chest, Solid Wood Construction
Each chest is created with 100% solid oak on the front, top and sides. The bottom and rear panels are finished with solid red cedar. This rear cedar panel generally faces the wall or bed. A finished rear panel option is also available, where the rear panel is created from solid oak to match the front of the chest (see under 'Product Options').
The exterior wood is finished to preserve and protect the chest. The interior wood is left unfinished, making the opening of your hope chest a very pleasurable experience. Cedar adds a sweet, pleasant scent to any room.
Genuine Solid Hardwood: Our hope chests are created from 100% genuine hardwoods. There is no pine, plywood filler, pressed wood, "select hardwoods" or veneers used in our chests.
Repair: If the hope chest is dinged, scratched or gouged via accident then your chest can be sanded and refinished. This is the benefit of solid hardwood. Our hope chests are very solidly constructed and are intended to be a living part of your home and family, to be handed down from one generation to the next for many years to come.
Our hope chests include twin safety latches, which lock in place to hold open the lid. This allows for easier access to the interior of the chest. (Our small and medium chests require only one latch).
Our chests are crafted without a lock, and are thus created to be child-safe. However, you may also choose to add a lock to your new chest. This optional lock cannot be turned without a key, ensuring that the hope chest cannot be accidentally locked from the inside.
