Please see examples of previous chests to see what is available. Have a different idea? We will work with you to make your design reality.
We do not offer shadowbox services! The shadowbox pinning shown in our pictures were completed by a separate company at customer's expense.
We will develop a rough sketch of your desired chest and send it to you for your approval. No work will begin on your hand crafted, made to order sea chest until it is customer approved.
Due to the one-of-a-kind nature of our product, payment must be made in full prior to start of construction.
Please order as far out as possible. If you are planning on having your chest at a retirement ceremony we strongly urge you to order at least one year prior.
Our chests come from Indonesia by ship. In order to minimize transoceanic shipping costs, which are included in the price of the chest, we must transport a certain number of completed chests at a time.
Your shipping charges are from the port facility to the delivery address, or the "last mile" and will be listed separately on your invoice.
