A typical hope chest would have small compartments so that the items stored in it can be divided into their various uses. They often also come with a small tray drawer down the bottom so that smaller valuables could be easily stored and later found.

Because a lot of the items that are stored in these hope chests are materials such as Manchester and the like, the use of cedar was necessary for the moth-repelling qualities the wood has. When storing materials for a long time it was necessary to ensure that the contents were not destroyed when it came time to use them.
