2023 UPDATE: Please note - this blog post was originally posted in Oct. 2016, but since then the builder Furniture Traditions closed their doors and is not in business, so we no longer offer their items and we have no source to get any replacement hardware for Furniture Traditions items.
If you are in search of a beautiful cedar or blanket chest, we now offer many different styles (as well as sizes, wood species, and finish colors) that are high quality and proudly made here in the USA by some of our Amish furniture craftsmen in a small Amish community in Indiana. We suggest you visit our store in Mesa to see some examples in person as well as visiting our Amish Furniture Creations™ website's catalog (for the Cedar or Blanket Chests) at this link HERE.
The weather is cooling off now. How about thinking of a Cedar Chest? They make an ideal storage space for bulky bedding or winter clothing and the Cedar lining is a natural bug repellant. Cedar has a nice smell that can always be refreshed with a very light sanding. Your bedding or clothing will always smell nice and fresh when you store it in a Cedar Chest.
The featured Cedar Chests comes in two different colors of Oak. The Muscovado Dark Oak finish is pictured above and the Medium Woodland Oak finish is pictured below. These Cedar Chests are good size with plenty of storage space. The exterior measurements are 50 W X 20 D X 23 1/2 H. The interior space has 7.3 cubic feet of usable storage space.
They are made in the USA by Furniture Traditions.
