The joinery styles used were made with hammer and chisel in a very precise manner since the corner pieces of the chest needed to fit exactly into each other. Dovetail joinery shows off the skill of the cabinet maker better than the mortise and tenon style. All of the small cuts for a precise fit are fully visible like interlocking fingers.The craftsmen who labored on these blanket chests were considered masters of their trade. In fact, these men were known as cabinet makers and were in very high demand. Some German immigrants, along with men of religious communities like the Amish, also made names for themselves as master woodworkers. These men took exceptional pride in their wood working skills.
Many eighteenth-century Pennsylvania German furniture pieces, especially blanket chests, were decorated with sulfur inlay. This was done by first carving out a shallow decorative design into the wood chests using very sharp wood chisels. From there, molten sulfur was carefully poured into the incisions. This material, which was ivory-colored, was first mentioned in historical art literature in 1958.
You probably have a toolkit, or a junk drawer, that contains tools that you use to perform tasks such as cutting paper, tightening screws, gluing things together Have you ever tried to cut paper without scissors? Tighten a screw with your finger nail? Get something to stick together without glue? You probably have - and wished that you had (or found) the appropriate tool.
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.
