Made, right here, in the U.S.A.

Every effort has been made to select the best quality materials. It is getting increasingly harder to find good quality wood. That may seem "hard to believe", but most of the old growth lumber has been harvested years ago. Whenever possible, we will use older wood for its strength, and dimensional stability. We want our products to provide years of dependable service. Brian Lowery

A place for your "treasures".

May 28, 2010 - I alway wanted to make a pirates chest. This one has all the features. The sides are tapered on all four sides. I guess that makes it easier to lower into a hole in the ground. The top has an undulating curve. It wouldn't be a "true" treasure chest without the curved top. (Kinda looks like Capt'n Crunch's hat, but I know that is not the reason for the compound curves). You got to secure your treasures, but I didn't want just a store-bought hasp. The solid brass hasp was modified and incorporated into a hand cut "skull and crossed bones" wood applique. Sides are secured with water proof glue and wooden pegs.
