Wicker Storage Trunks & Chests

How we make them.
The Frames...We make a very sturdy frame from mahogany wood. Then the entire trunk is finished & lined with different textures of wood.
The Weaving...After all of the carpentry is done the weaving begins. Different textures of natural rattan are woven & wrapped over the entire exterior of the frame. Please notice the corners of the trunk lids. See how carefully & skillfully the weaving is? Everything is done the right way and you will see that the wicker materials are top notch.
The finishing & hardware...Now the trunk is ready to be painted or stained. The last steps are to attach the hinges that hold the lid on, screw on the hydrolic hinge that helps keep the trunk lid up when you open it, then attach the front latch & both side handles. Finally a a plastic glide is placed on the bottom of each leg. You will see the different style trunks & see that some have latches & handles & some do not, but the frames are all made the same way.
Really Strong..While not meant to be a seat they are all strong enough for 2 normal sized people to sit on them. These are truly well made, attractive pieces of furniture. Each trunk weighs about 48 lbs. With normal use you will have these trunks for years to come.
What do our customers use them for? Mostly for storage. Shoes, clothes, pocketbooks, blankets or anything else. Do you have good furniture and need something really nice to go with it?
