There are many varied types of storage trunks and chests available nowadays. Every furniture store sells different styles of chests and trunks, and the material varies from metal to wood. The wooden chests can be made with pine, oak, walnut or cherry. The really high-end wooden chests are made of mahogany. Cedar, being an insect repellent, is used to line the insides of all the wooden chests. This helps to protect goods such as clothing, woollens and linen.
Many wood workers back then,as now, understood the importance of quality workmanship, which does include the use of the best wood available. Most hope chests made in America during the 1700's and 1800's were constructed with the hardwoods found growing in the surrounding areas of their towns. Walnut, Cherry and Oak were the prime choices along with an Eastern Pine which was also a hardwood type. Along the Eastern Seaboard, some wood artisans also used hardwoods imported from South America know for their beautiful 'inner glow' quality finish such as Mahogany.
