This is a commissioned reproduction of an 18th Century Seachest using Curly Silver Maple. I excluded adding a till for aesthetic reasons. The lock was tricky due to the poor construction of the locking mechanism and I had to replace using a German made steel lock. The Beckett’s are made by a very talented person that has 40 years of experience. The dovetails were made using a Keller Jig and glued. the nails are copper roseheads.
