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.

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.
As the number of trunks and chests available has been rising in the past few years, the prices have also been falling simultaneously. Some of these cost less than 100, whereas the truly fancy ones can go up to a couple of thousand pounds. The type of material used, the additional features of the trunks, the amount of detailing on the chests - all these are factors that determine the total cost of the trunk. A wooden trunk built with inlay work will cost much more than a steel trunk built with casters and simpler locks.
