The durability of the trunk is one of the major considerations to keep in mind while choosing a trunk. Most first-time buyers tend to give major importance to the aesthetics of the trunk and overlook the durability aspect of the trunk. The lightweight ones may look good and be easier to move around, but they are likely to get dented and spoilt quite easily. They will also spoil the clothes within them if they are not lined with good quality cedar on the insides. The better quality ones may cost more, but in the long-term scenario, it makes sense to buy a long-lasting and sturdy trunk.
Kiln dried wood is very important when constructing hope chest furniture. Blanket storage chests have the need to be made strong since they are large furniture types and are able to hold very heavy amounts of personal items. The use of kiln dried wood means that your furniture piece will be able to take temperature changes. It also means that the construction quality of your blanket chest is more enduring since the wood will not try to shrink and bend out of shape. This is an important factor since most handcrafted blanket chests are made using precise joinery styles that require sturdy hardwoods.
These Early American Hope Chests were not made with cedar on the inside. Cedar linings and bottoms are the additions of present day craftsmen to their Blanket Chests. This is a favorite feature among buyers since cedar eliminates insect pests and releases a wonderful aroma every time the lid is opened. This fresh smell can be rejuvenated by simply roughing the cedar with small grit sandpaper.
