Hope Chest

Return to woodshop product list

Solid hardwood hope/blanket chest made to last several generations (hope chests and blanket chests are really just different names for the same design, but blanket chests are often larger and they are used to serve different purposes). Includes solid brass handles and safety hinges. All corners are full-through dovetails. Feel free to adjust the dimensions to your needs.

Chests of equivalent quality are selling for between $1500 and $2000 online, and more in stores. Our start at about half, and are delivered complete -- no assembly necessary.

Wood appearance can vary significantly from board to board. Images are examples only.

Stain/Finish: Danish oil combines the appearance of a handrubbed linseed oil finish with some of the durability of varathane. These give a beautiful finish that allows the wood's natural beauty to show through while providing moderate protection. Selecting 'none' allows you to stain/finish the piece yourself upon receipt. We can also create custom colors to your specifications. This item has approximately square surface feet to stain. Click on your desired stain.
