The older style of blanket chest was normally fairly large since it was required to hold so many items. Wood craftsmen learned the best methods to construct these important pieces of furniture. Mortise and tenon joinery and dovetail joinery were the favored construction types. Beautiful hardwoods like cherry, oak, maple and walnut were used in one inch thicknesses to create extremely durable wooden chests.
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.
Finally, a media cabinet may be what you need to organize your CDs and video games, or to store your television or computer. Like the mule chest, there is no set design for the media cabinet. Many are geared toward teens while some give you a stylish, sophisticated place to discreetly store electronics and accessories.
There is one potential drawback to lingerie chests. Because of their narrow and trim design, these space saver chests are not suitable storage spaces for larger items, including bulky garments and the like. However, these space saving chests earn their moniker because these units are suited perfectly to store lighter garments and smaller items ... like lingerie. Of course, lingerie can cost a good deal of money. In the end, lingerie chests are idyllic when it comes to protecting the investment you have made in your most personal garment choices.
