Reclaimed Chestnut Keepsake Boxes
Read the full title Reclaimed Chestnut Keepsake Boxes
These neat little keepsake boxes are made from reclaimed American chestnut. In the early 1900’s the chestnut tree was attacked by a blight which eventually killed all of the chestnut trees in America. The standing trees then were infested with a beetle that created holes and tracks throughout the lumber. This particular wood was reclaimed from a barn and then an office in northern Ohio. It’s a wonderful wood to work, and I hope you like it.
The boxes measure 9” x 5.5” x 2-5/8” (L x W x H). The top is hinged using brass pin hinges which don't detract from the simplicity of the design. A brass hasp (latch) is provided, but I'm leaving it up to the buyer to decide what type, if any, lock is to be used. The interior of the box is divided into 6 small storage areas by removable walnut slats. The slats can be arranged in many different ways to produce differently sized area, or removed completely for an open area, perhaps for a diary or journal. Each box listed has a different color interior, so make sure you pick your favorite color.
I’m up for a challenge, and would welcome the chance to make a box specifically for you. The top of the box can be laser engraved for someone or something special. You can view other quality hardwood items at my website: www.everlastingfurniture.com . Contact me for more info.
In most cases, your item will be shipped by FedEx or Priority Mail with tracking information the next business day after your purchase. Multiple items will be shipped together, if possible.
Thanks for taking a look!!!

We LOVE our new clock, it's just beautiful and the craftsmanship is superb! A great looking clock, and surprising the cost isn't higher, we are very happy with our purchase and being small business owners ourselves, love supporting other small businesses.
Les was great; they were able to help me customize my order and deliver quickly!
Beautifully hand-crafted box, well worth the cost! Woodworking and attention to detail are magnificent!
The clock is so beautiful and clearly made by a talented craftsman. Can’t want to put it on our new fireplace mantle. The shipping was also the fastest we’ve seen in a long time. We’re so happy with our clock.
