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.
The groups of people known as the fancy people would have been the ones that made blanket chests with inlay designs. The plain people rarely added embellishments of any type to hope chests, their homes or their clothing which is why they were referred to as the plain people. The fancy people not only added inlay to their wooden blanket chests, they also liked fully painted designs which had specific meanings for individual families.
