Solid wood storage chests are not only great for storing seldom used items out of sight but they are also great for extra seating all while sprucing up the rooms décor. Our wooden storage chests are made of premium hardwoods that will stand the test of time and look beautiful while doing so. You can order your storage bench in several different hardwoods like Mahogany, Teak, Cherry, Cedar and Maple. Unlike the cookie cutter storage benches you can get at the big box stores using our designer you can specify the exact size to fit your space.
Each wooden storage chest we manufacture begins with FAS grade hardwood lumber, much of which we kiln dry in our proprietary kilns. The rough lumber is machined to the desired dimensions in our finish mill and then is carefully fashioned into premium quality organizers. Our stock hardwood selection includes Red Oak, White Oak, Poplar, Mahogany, Walnut -- over 15 species, but we can manufacture in any species you desire.
Our plant uses only locally sourced domestic hardwoods and premium plantation imports. We do 100% of the processing in the USA, proudly. Much of our wood working equipment is American made and all of our machining, assembling and finishing is done in our state of the art facility in Western Pennsylvania. The skilled craftsmen who create our products, some in the third generation, take pride in each unit we assemble and enjoy the proud heritage that Appalachian hardwoods and Appalachian craftsmen can imbue to our timeless custom stair treads, risers and parts.
Poplar hardwood lacking bold coloration or an exciting grain pattern has a pale olive-yellow brown heartwood and sapwood is lighter off-white or gray with greenish hues and doesn't often get the respect we feel it deserves. The Poplar tree is widespread across all of North America and Europe, and it grows very rapidly and to large sizes, making it very easy to sustain.
Because the wood is often painted or used in secondary applications where it isn’t visible, it is very easy to find wide, clear sections of Poplar for a variety of uses.Poplar lumber is pretty soft and very easy to work. But botanically speaking it is a hardwood meaning it is a deciduous tree. But it is highly stable, easily available in width and length, and takes paint and stain famously well. However using Poplar as a stain grade species is often overlooked. Some will call Poplar wood "poor man's Cherry" as it oxidizes over time to a much darker shade of brown.
