About the Urban Craftsman Hardwood Valet

Handmade in Illinois, the Urban Craftsman Men's Valet is handcrafted with heirloom-quality hardwoods. The box is constructed of solid sapele wood with contrasting spalted maple handles. A single specimen of sapele is used to assure perfect color and matching wood grains, while hidden wooden key segments are added to each mitered corner to add strength and durability.

The handsome lid is created from a burled form of madrone, expertly cut to reveal the wood's swirling pattern, and framed in dark wenge wood. The finishing touch is provided by a centralized accent of spalted maple wood.

Within the valet, the bottom is lined with beige felted fabric for safe-keeping of personal items - wallet, keys, phone, jewelry, watch, money clip etc. A removable upper tray includes a pen pocket and a lined compartment for easy access to keys or coins. .

Wood details : Each box is constructed of all-natural hand-polished sustainable hardwoods and provided with a premium clear finish to protect against scratches and moisture. All coloring is natural - stains are not used. The following woods are the primary types used in the creation of this jewelry chest:

-Sapele : Frequently used in cabinetry and the production of musical instruments, sapele is native to Africa. It is very similar to mahogany with a lighter reddish-orange tint. Although more abundant than mahogany, sapele is selectively harvested to promote sustainable farming.

-Madrone : A member of the hardwood arbutus trees, madrone is a sustainable wood native to the Pacific areas of the US and Canada, It is very strong with a fine grain, with a light reddish-orange-brown color. Burls (deformed growth, sought after for the unique grain pattern) readily occurs with madrone.

-Spalted Maple : Maple is a strong hardwood native to North America with a creamy color. Spalting is a coloration of the maple caused naturally by fungi. The unique coloration pattern is sought after by woodworkers. 

-Wenge-wood : A non-endangered African hardwood with a dark, bold color. Due to the high density and strength of wenge-wood, it is suitable for the framing and feet of this chest.
