This large handcrafted Custom Military Trunk has recently been redesigned based on feedback we receive directly from our customers. We have added a rubbed bronze handle for easy opening and closing functionality and upgraded to a much stronger trunk lid stay that provides better resistance when closing to keep the lid from slamming. Also, we have taken your suggestions and exposed the inside lid so we can offer a shadowbox insert as an option. This provides a lot of room for pinning medals and patches.

Due to package size dimensions limitations, we cannot ship any trunks to APO / FPO / DPO addresses. 

Additional options include: The inside lid with either your custom artwork that is framed and accented with hammered brass nail heads, or a large felt shadowbox for pinning your decorations, and either a half-length tray or a full-length tray. Items that can be added to the inside tray are the slotted challenge coin holder,  3×5 US flag holder with plexiglass and cork covered felt shadow box. The only available options for this trunk are listed above with pricing.

You also have the ability to put custom artwork on the inside lid which is framed and accented with hammered brass nail heads. Makes the Perfect Gift for the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, National Guard, Air National Guard, Navy SeaBees Veterans in your life. Custom Handmade Military Trunk personalized with your artwork.

    The military trunk was perfect for my needs. The inner lid was the shadow box for all the rank, name tapes, and medals. It had enough room inside for one of each of my uniforms & my flag, and the tray was perfect for all my coins. It is solid wood, beautifully crafted and well made. You will not be disappointed getting this.

    The trunk was great! The only suggestion I would have is to have two lid support hinges and to wd-40 them ahead of time. Also, please secure it with longer screws. The one on ours almost came out on the first opening.

    Have never been dissappointed with the products I have purchased and the recipients were overwhelmed at the craftsmanship and designs. The design staff are patient and made every effort to get the designs of the artwotk and box layouts exactly as I had asked for.

    The trunk was beautiful! My friend loved it as it was waiting for him after his last deployment (25 years of service!). Ordering and customizing was easy. Speaking with employees was even easier. They shipped it faster that I thought they would which was nice. We had an issue with delivery since my friend was still deployed BUT they were so helpful getting it worked out! The tray had a broken handle but they replaced that quickly as well! I would definitely recommend them and order from them again in the future! Great quality and customer service!

    What an incredible piece!
    It is heavy, solid wood. You can feel the craftsmanship in every piece of the trunk.
    It’s all about the details, and for what we paid, we got details.
    Very very good product

    I have been wanting to order this trunk for quite a while. I finally convinced myself and couldn’t be happier. The quality is outstanding. The look is perfect. I have started to place my awards and unit crest to the inside lid and it is going to be very nice. Still waiting on some to arrive to be added but the picture gives you a good idea of how nice it turned out.

    I cannot thank you enough for the AMAZING quality of this trunk. I ordered this as a gift for my brother that just retired from the US ARMY. He was ecstatic when he received it and immediately put his flag in the case. We loved it so much. Aside from the quality of the product, the customer service was outstanding. I cannot remember the name of the woman I was corresponding with but the responsiveness and accuracy was was unmatched…AND I realized that y’all are in my home state! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

    Hello. I’m retiring after 31 years in the Air Force. I wanted something different and unique for my retirement. This chest has exceeded all of my expectations. The craftsmanship is amazing. I worked with Rosie and she understood exactly what I wanted and it looks beautiful. Also worked with Tammy and she made the purchase experience very easy. I will definitely pass on your information to my fellow military members. Again what an amazing beautiful chest. Thank you very much! Chief Rebecca Kallaher.

     I received this as my retirement gift for over 20 years in the United States Army from my Soldiers and team – S-1, 2nd Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne). I cannot express how humbled I was with such a precious gift, the craftsmanship and care put into making such an amazing gift was overwhelming.

    The company has exceeded my expectations. They replied to my request promptly and completed our design process in a 1 week or so. The delay was always my response to their comments. The product arrived in 3 weeks from the moment we finished the design. I recommend this company for their promptness

    I chose the military trunk for my husband for his Christmas/Welcome home gift from his first deployment. I just opened the box tonight and it’s beyond amazing! I knew the trunk would be the largest of all the products and I loved the craftsmanship online but when I unwrapped the trunk I was blown away. I LOVE it and I know Bryan will too. The photos, coloring, look, everything is just stunning. I couldn’t be happier. I will upload photos when my husband gets home from his deployment and opens his gift!  Shipping was fast and tracking was accurate!

     Tracking information was spot on, we received the Custom Military Trunk yesterday. It is truly beautiful! It was even better than I had expected, we had the Custom Military Trunk with the Army logo and our daughters name on the front with her MP logo on the inside. It is stunning

     I ordered the military trunk for my husband for his retirement from the Army after 31 years. I submitted my order in the afternoon and within hours I had proofs emailed back to me. From there, I was informed of the progress made on my order, when my order was shipped and tracking information to follow it. When I first opened the box, I was truly in awe of the craftsmanship. It is beautiful and exactly what I asked for. My husband opened the gift tonight and was speechless!! It is so beautiful!! I will be sharing this site with everyone!! Thank you for honoring service members.
