← Rustic Hickory is a popular choice if you want character in the wood. Strength, hardness and durability are key features of Hickory. The grain is normally straight, but can sometimes be irregular or wavy.
|The rustic hickory variety used can contain dark heartwood and light sapwood, sound knots and mineral streaks for a contrasting look. The small tight knots (sound knots) and mineral streaks are imperfections in the wood that give it that rustic look. The wood has a great deal of color variation between reddish brown, lighter brown and white. The larger the piece used the greater the chance of color variation. Your new Hickory chest has a lacquer finish and no stain to color the wood, but it will darken over time. Hickory is rustic enough to be great for a cabin or lodge and beautiful enough to blend into the most elite homes.|

Cherry has small imperfections known as "pitting" that occurs naturally. At Gerstner, these imperfections are kept to a minimum, but they sometimes can appear as very small knots, or a series of darker swirls and spots. American Cherry stain is light enough to highlight and accentuate the unique grain pattern. Smaller pieces of cherry will not show the flowing pattern as well as larger pieces. Your new cherry chest will darken over time.
Gerstner® uses quarter sawn white oak, which is renowned for its stability and unique "tiger striping" grain. The oak used in our chests are from 80 – 100 year old trees, the quality of lumber that we require for each and every Gerstner® Chest literally requires generations in the making. Your new oak chest will darken over time.
The lack of stain on these walnut products allow the rich variations in the natural wood grain to show. Each piece of walnut can vary greatly; from a very blond color, which is found closer to the heart or center of the tree, to a very dark or almost blackish tone. The larger the piece used the greater the chance of color variation. Your new walnut chest will lighten over time.
|Sturdy chrome hardware gives the chest added strength and durability while the non-marring rubber bumper feet allow you to set the chest down without fear of leaving scratches or dents. Comes with two keys. This high-quality chest with its classic American styling can protect your valuables while being a beautiful focal point in any room’s décor. Now is your opportunity to own a true heirloom that is sure to be treasured for years to come.|
These chests utilizes Gerstner quality tongue and groove construction which provides strength, durability and visual appeal. Each part is meticulously hand fitted for the most exacting fit possible. Hardwoods naturally retain some moisture and can expand and contract slightly with seasonal temperatures – the Gerstner craftsmen have taken this into consideration and all parts are fitted accordingly to allow for this natural occurrence while taking into account regional and seasonal differences that may affect this process as well.
