I recently acquired some nice flatware, and I’d like to invest in a solid wood storage chest. I’ve seen a lot of nice looking ones on stores like amazon, etc, but they are all made with particle board with some sort of “wood finish.”

I would like to buy something made from an actual piece of solid wood. Like real mahogany or cherry walnut or something like that. Where would I look to buy such a thing? Is my only option to have it custom made?

Thanks in advance!

It’s probably not your only option to have it made, but it may be your best option. Most of the small or medium sized woodworking these days is done in factories in china. The materials are pretty bad, and the workmanship is non-existent.

A box with dividers, like you are asking for, is fairly easy to turn out in just about any shop, and could be endlessly customized to your exact needs and taste. I think that a lot of local woodworkers in your area would be happy to help.

garage sales…10-20 bucks will get you an older solid wood one, even the newer 2-tier particle board ones will cost you 200 bucks You may have to refinish it to freshen it up
