Gunda Misty. drawer. September 17th , 2017.
This particular style of chest of drawers is constructed on legs. Because of this design technique, there ends up being additional space below the chest of drawers itself that otherwise would have gone to waste.
The further away the drawer the less important its contents should be, or at least the less frequently you need to access them.
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.
