There was a time where the farmer would go out to the barn and grab boards that were 24 inches wide, and quickly throw together a chest for storage with six simple pieces. Today we need to glue up several pieces to get 24 inch wide stock, but at that part is done for you. So you get stock in the width you need to indeed make this beautiful 18th Century Six-Board Chest. We've gotten as close to authentic reproduction as we can right up to the cut nails used for authentic assembly!

The Six-Board Chest’s 18th Century design offers the usefulness of storage, along with the attractiveness of a bench for use at the end of a bed, in a corner or elsewhere in the home.

We have some of these project kits in stock, ready to go. Once they are gone, orders will be shipped in 4-6 weeks.
