As all of my work is, the piece is hand planed on the surfaces for authenticity, as the originals were. The hand planing is a lot of work, but it adds so much, to the surfaces. They don't look mechanically done.
The front and back, are made from several boards, the same as my large blue blanket chest. I put the same finish as I do on my full size pieces, I really fuss, and the distressing is done in a meticulous manner.
You can order on with a decorative escutcheon, as per the photo, from my other blanket chests, the larger two, that are in my shop, but it doesn't lock. The charge is 13.00. To order one, there is a size change, it would be 22 wide.
