Storage space is at a premium in most homes, and often residents are looking for storage facilities that will not look out of place in a room, yet managing to enclose within them many items which need to be put away. Storage trunks and chests are perennial favourites among families, since they look good and are very versatile. A beautiful wooden storage chest in the living room can also become an improvised sitting place, with bolsters and cushions and a matching throw cover on it. A light colour storage chest can brighten up any dark room, and an antique look storage trunk with brass handles and locks can become the focal point of a simple room.
Blanket chests are one type of furniture that is worth being made well. They are handcrafted wooden chests passed from one generation to the next which families fill with their heirloom treasures. The blanket chest, also known as a hope chest or dowry chest, has retained its sentimental value in our society as a family heirloom due to its beauty and fine craftsmanship. Many homes also use these versatile blanket chests for many different types of storage, depending upon the room in which they are placed.
For my cooking classes I always take both types of cinnamon: a high quality cassia quill and ground Korintje AA cassia, alongside true cinnamon quills and ground cinnamon. True cinnamon quills are curled and layered together in a tight roll, are very thin and easily crushed. The flavor is lighter and more delicate, with a somewhat lemony quality.
Blanket chests with inlay designs are fewer than the more popular painted designs consisting mainly of hex designs. This is probably because creating the sulfur inlay style involves carving into the wood chests in a precise manner, which raises the difficulty factor.
