Blanket chest in sheoak


Handcrafted in rare WA sheoak, this blanket chest/toy box has been built using traditional joinery techniques. The solid brass butt hinges and the brass friction stays on the lid were both sourced from the UK. The friction stays hold the lid open, and are adjustable allowing the lid to close slowly if desired. This is ideal if the chest is to be used as a toy box for example. The base of the chest is western red cedar. This timber was traditionally used to protect clothes and bed linen/blankets from moths and mildew in original blanket chests and drawers. Ideal as a gift at any age, and with the traditional joinery and hardware used this is a true heirloom piece that many generations will love. Polished with an environmentally friendly but durable oil and beeswax finish.This particular chest measured 1000mm(L) x 525mm(W)x 485mm(H), however each one is custom made so can be built to a size which suits your needs. Also available in a variety of different timbers.
