Campaign chests and furniture such as this one were traditionally constructed from Mahogany or Teak because these woods had the advantage of only minimally expanding and contracting when exposed to extremes in temperature and humidity, Mahogany and Teak are also very resilient and resistant to infestation from woodworm, termites etc.
