Before buying a chest of drawers, you must first of all, consider the spaces available where it is suppose to be kept. A size that fits the space and fulfils your storage requirement must be selected. Also, one must not forget the doors and entry ways. A chest of drawer must be placed in such a way that the door and drawers do not collide while opening as this would damage the finish and cause scratches on both the entry door and surface of the drawers. Also, make sure that chest is kept away from any heat or water source as both water and heat reduces the life of the wooden furniture.
Cedar is a wood type which has gained great popularity for the creating of hope chests in more recent times. Cedar is a wood with a huge variance in color, going from a light tan to a brownish red. This gives furniture pieces a 'comfortable' look. Of course the wonderful smell of cedar is also an added attraction. Many wood workers choose to line their hope chests with a thin layer of Cedar, or at least add a layer to the bottoms. The wonderful cedar smell can be rejuvenated by gentle sanding with 200 grit sand paper.
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.
