With a genuine cedar bottom panel, the Fireside Lodge Furniture Hickory Blanket Chest keeps your blankets and woolens protected. This gorgeous chest is handcrafted in the USA the old-fashioned way; all logs are kiln dried to ensure an ideal, low level of moisture content. Each chest is one-of-a-kind, with the rustic touches you crave such as rustic knots, worm tracking, and old nail holes. Bark-on corners and edges add immeasurably to the overall rustic character, while quiet-close hinges make this a chest you'll actually use. A glossy clear-coat catalyzed lacquer finish provides extra durability. All materials are fully CARB compliant.
What is Checking?
Our hickory logs are kiln dried and our cedar logs are air dried to perfection, yet it's only natural that every log will check. Checking is the natural drying process that every log goes through to release its moisture. It is common for your logs to check during autumn when homes' furnaces begin to run, making the air a little drier than it is throughout the spring and summer months. Typically, each log will develop one primary check that goes to the center of the log. Occasionally there will be a secondary check. But never fear! The check stops at the core or center of the log and does not affect the lifespan or structural integrity of our fine rustic furnishings.
