QUESTION: HOW VERSATILE IS A LARGE BLANKET CHEST OR BOX?


15 Century Chest above

My opinion…EXTREMELY!


Antique Pennsylvania Chest above

Here are my thoughts on the simple, large, well built CHEST, dovetailed nicely or fastened with glue and screws. By the way, the items shown here I would not dare call “simple” as the craftsmen have certainly taken time and care and worked hard and meticulously for which I have much respect.

1. The Toy Box
2. The Family Blanket Chest
3. The Coffee Table
4. The Hunters Lockable Ammo/optics Chest
5. The Football Tailgating supply chest
6. THE TOOL CHEST (BOX) OF COURSE
7. Modularity, Modification, Simple Shape Attractiveness
8. The Trim Options are limitless (moldings etc)
9. Can I say “Custom Paint” modern or antique
10. Stain, Stain, Stain,

There are just a few.

My argument for the simple historically reliable large Blanket Chest
Hey…Before the “chest of drawers” saw the light of day, the coffer/”chest” was historically here a few hundred years earlier, right.

Well, have fun and chime in as you feel the need!

Good examples.
I have a chest sitting in my office next to me that came over on ship from Germany I find it to be an extremely useful storage cabinet. :)
