Childs hope chest

Damaged chest inspires new design for the Lee children

Everyone was just heartbroken when the first chest was broken in shipping. With our Satisfaction Guarantee, we paid to have it returned to us. The Lee's took the opportunity to make some changes in its design to more suit their needs. Here is what they said about their experience.

Hi Kathy,

We got our "Sara Lee" chest and LOVE IT!!!!  It is awesome!  It's beautiful, functional, durable, high quality and obviously has a lot of attention to detail.  It has exceeded our expectations!  Barring a fire or being dropped off a cliff, I think it will last for thousands of years!  Thanks, too, for the tips on caring for it.  We really want it to outlast us as well as our grand kids so will be happy to take the small amount of effort to occasionally oil it.  The chest is really perfect and we wouldn't change a thing on it even if we could.  It was really great being able to have it custom designed exactly to our desires. Just as I expected, the children have taken to jumping on top of and off of it and it's solid as a rock.  We are getting a very good value, too, because at the price we paid for it we wouldn't get nearly the same quality elsewhere.  In fact I haven't seen this kind of quality workmanship even at much higher prices.  We want you and Dale to know how much we appreciate it!

Please feel free to use my comments on your web site or elsewhere if you would like.  I am ecstatic about it!

Please tell Dale that he can get started on the two end tables which we are eagerly waiting for!  He can follow the same design he used for the chest and we won't be disappointed!

Have a great day!

The first chest was a "Sara Lee" Style with single frame lid and original base.
It was a blanket size made with Yellow Birch.

The French style lid adds strength to help support its use. The raised panels are what makes it the "Sara Lee" style
A half tray helps organize storage.
The molded base adds transitional design as the chest meets the floor and doesn't catch crumbs from little fingers.
Birch Purple Heart, and Curly Maple make up this single frame lid.
