A classic design and sturdy craftsmanship make these handmade wooden (maple or oak) Sea Chests a smart choice for your retirement and home interior. Every custom laser engraved retirement sea chest comes with a built-in shadowbox and custom double layer matte for your personal items, full cedar interior lining. A optional full 4-6 inch deep pull-out shelf is available, (2/3 length pull-out cedar shelf, 1/3 length pull-out coin holder), tempered-glass, (optional tempered-glass window) to display a cutlass or combo cover in the front of the chest. Plus, plenty of room to hold all of your old uniforms, award certificates, personal items, and whatever prized possessions you will want to store for generations.
Every Sea Chest is handcrafted with exceptional attention to detail to ensure a one-of-a-kind individual design. The typical build time is 4-6 weeks, however we work on a first ordered served basis depending on the purchase date. We recommend contacting us 12 months out to ensure we have spots available and can meet your request. The handcrafted nature of this product will produce minor differences in design, and sizing.
Customers must provide their personal items to be displayed within the shadowbox; Ribbons/Medals, Challenge Coin(s), Rank Insignias, Warfare Devices, etc... and any other personal items depicting your Military Service. I will return all unused items. (These items must be received within 2-3 weeks after starting to ensure timely delivery of your sea chest prior to retirement).
