“Hey there! Wanna buy some….treasure?”
Chester, the Handmade Resin Chest Monster, makes us smile. Every nook and cranny is stuffed with details and personality. In other words, to know him is to love him and we do!
The Gaming Geeks’ hand-poured sculptures are made from an organic filler* mixed with resin. They chose to use organic filler as it has a dense wood-like appearance, and should it ever chip or scratch, it’s easy to fix with sanding as the material is consistent all the way through. Because these are hand-poured, there may be some micro-bubbles, which enhances the look of worm-pitted wood. Initial curing takes a little over one day to be solid; but takes several weeks to fully cure.
After pouring, rough edges are sanded down and the lid and base are each checked to ensure a good fit. The chest is then given a paint wash inside and out and rubbed down to enhance the grain of the wood and all the cracks and crevices. Next, the eyes are painted black and then given a glossy clear resin coat to add depth and personality.
Finally, they apply several washes and painted aging effects on the banding, teeth, tongue and the interior. The inside is also sprayed with a clear, matte finish to help prevent paint chipping.
Chester measures approximately 6” x 6” x 6” and highly-detailed on the outside and inside. At nearly FOUR POUNDS, this is a hefty chest!
*NOTE: They use cocoa bean shells for our organic filler. Please be warned if you have an allergy to cocoa.

We get excited to send out your stuff and we know the anticipation is killing you so we typically ship within one to three business days. However, life happens and we are a very small company so times may be extended slightly on occasion.
Orders are prepared for shipping in the order they are received. Unless, Trevor is working….he likes to prepare orders before we get them. Weirdo. We ship through standard mail with affordable flat rate shipping. However, there may be some exceptions that could require special rates such as extremely heavy or bulky items.
ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS (NON-CANERDIANS)
BUYERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR IMPORT FEES AND TAXES.
International mail goes through customs, something us chickens have no control over. We think they like to take all the fun toys out and play with them. As a result, it can take two to four weeks to arrive, depending on where you’re located.
Customs fees are the responsibility of the buyer. We are required, by law, to state the actual value of the order on the customs form, no fudging.
In conclusion, thanks for dropping by and if you are reading this line….wow, you are truly a nerd! Congratulations!
