Captain's Sea Chest

Captain's Sea Chest

from 4,390.00

At sea or on land, sailors love to stow their belongings in our finest-kind Captain's Sea Chest.

Our Captain’s Sea Chest is joined with massive hand-dovetailed corners for strength, as on 19th century sea chests.

The front and back are slanted with classic tumblehome ends, effecting a low center of gravity, for stability on a ship’s pitching deck.

A handsome bullnose moulding is tenoned into the lid to protect and prevent warpage.

A beveled base moulding surrounds a rift pine ship-lapped bottom with hardwood dragging skids.

Two nautical five-point stars are smartly inlaid into the front of the sea chest.

Tapered cleats with hand-carved starwheels secure the rope beckets to the tumblehome ends above the centerline, providing a gimbaled counterbalance when hoisting.

Traditional marlinespike seamanship is evident in the hand-knotted rope beckets, featuring coach-whipped bails, turk's heads, needle hitching and pinked leather washers.

Finished with several coats of waterproof marine varnish hand-rubbed to a satin patina.

Built to last, an Adriance Sea Chest will be treasured for generations.
