storage chests are not hand built by us here at Dorris Wood Creations, but are purchased from a supplier and offered
to those of you wanting storage rather than display cabinets. They work especially well for folding or pocket knives, as well
as for fixed blades as shown in the photos. (and let's not forget they work great for tools too). These chests are great
for various collections, and to store items for hobbies, crafts, sewing, paints & art supplies, etc.
We use these in the shop for tools at various working stations. They are small, fit easily on
a workbench or table surface, and hold the tools needed for that specific machine, task, etc., so we don't have to walk
across the shop to the larger chests many times throught a day. Since we use these here we feel comfortable offering
them to you as all in all they are pretty nice chests. They offer a solution to the storage problem many of us have when it
comes to knives, small boxes, and sheaths. I use several of our display cabinets for my personal knives,
but also like to use these chests for the sheaths, sharpening stones, para cords included with wrist thongs, etc., ... things
that you don't want to display in a glass door cabinet but yet have no "real place" designated to keep them.
They look great, very tasteful, sitting with the cabinets or on a desk top (and you don't have to worry about hiding
them like you would an old unsightly worn cardboard box.).
engraving is mentioned, and the price is listed in the descriptions below for each of these chests with and without engraving.
This engraving is done on the top of the lid with an ink fill to allow it to "stand out" very well against the wood
A). 8 Drawer Chest w/ green felt
The 8 drawer model shown above states that it is made of solid wood with a walnut
stain. There are 6 smaller drawers toward the top, and 2 full width drawers. The top also opens and provides additional storage.
There is a mirror mounted to the inside of the top. Soft felt lining is used in the top compartment and the drawers to prevent
your knives from getting scratched. This model has a full wood front that locks with a keyed lock, and slides down under the
drawers when you open it so it is out of the way. There are pins on the bottom left and right of the wood panel that slide
in grooves (open much like a garage door, but goes down instead of up). The top also latches shut and locks with a separate
keyed lock so you can open either the top or the drawers separately from each other. There are 2 sets of keys included. There
are metal pieces on the corners to protect them from getting bumped, or dinged, and to dress it up a bit too. There is also
a handle on the top of this chest to allow for easy carrying.
Custom laser engraving is available on the lid to personalize this chest for an additional charge of
