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.
When it comes time to declutter, organize, and tidy things up, you'll find that storage systems are a great help. Even if you don't have the budget to buy expensive organizers, you can still set up a system using boxes. The goal is to organize your possessions in a logical and orderly way and then keep them like that so they don't get out of hand in your storage system. You can use boxes, storage bins, peg boards, and all kinds of gadgets to help you keep your stuff separated and easy to locate.
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.
Another benefit of these chests rests in the fact that they are durable. On first blush, a person checking out a lingerie chest might initially conclude that because of its design it is not as durable as more standard storage units. The fact is that these storage chests are as durable as any other type of storage chest that available at this juncture.
