Custom Medieval Chest: Solid Wood Handmade By Master Craftsmen
At ArtFactory.com, we specialize in designing and building custom furniture based on designs from history. These are not reproduction quality products, but are original works of art built using the same techniques and materials that were used to construct the originals. This custom medieval chest is no exception, and is designed and built using the same materials and techniques that would have been used in The Middle Ages. The main body is constructed with mortise and tenon, peg and dowel construction, and as shown is made from thick, solid cedar cypress. That means genuine, full length timber, never particle boards, laminates, or veneers. When we say wood, we mean "The Genuine Article". This quality of materials and construction makes this a strong box that is truly stage coach worthy.
The hand forged, iron corner fittings, handles, and locking mechanisms are meticulously precision fitted by the hands of our master blacksmiths using hammer and anvil. The hand forged solid iron hardware solidifies the chest to make a true strong box. Blacksmith forged wrought iron rivets provide additional strength and durability. The handles are also solid, hand forged iron, and are functional to be used to lift this heavy chest. Inside, the lid is lined with a hand tacked, genuine full grain leather lining. The antique style lock is a historically accurate design, and functional with working key. When opened, the lid is held by a strong locking hardware system. This custom medieval chest is inspired by the great castle storage chests of the old world.
Building A Family Legacy Though Heirloom Quality Furnishings

Building heirloom furniture and doors intended to last forever is one of the primary ways we all have in achieving some small part of immortality.
