The design styles, dimensions and construction types differ among these Hope Chests which shows that the craftsmen did not copy each others work. The foot design changes from Dower Chest to Dower Chest with a large variety of bracket feet, rounded ball feet or no feet at all. Some Hope Chests had two or three drawers along the bottom, while others had none. Many Blanket Chests had inlay designs or special painted designs.
Kiln dried wood is very important when constructing hope chest furniture. Blanket storage chests have the need to be made strong since they are large furniture types and are able to hold very heavy amounts of personal items. The use of kiln dried wood means that your furniture piece will be able to take temperature changes. It also means that the construction quality of your blanket chest is more enduring since the wood will not try to shrink and bend out of shape. This is an important factor since most handcrafted blanket chests are made using precise joinery styles that require sturdy hardwoods.
Steel or aluminium metal trunks are also very durable, and are generally built with wheels. They are lightweight, easy to move around and long-lasting. These can also be painted to match the room dcor. Cane storage chests are also available, but these are generally purchased as part of an entire furniture set made of cane. Wooden and metal trunks are now being built with outer trimmings such as decorative handles, panels, antique look locks and copper hinges and handles.
