Miniature chests and other chest projects for dollhouses, roomboxes and dioramas

 

Chests are needed for mini treasures keepsakes. They can hold pirate treasure, precious memories of the past, or of the future (a bride's hope chest). They may also be called memory trunks.

In this context, they are simply elaborate boxes meant for portable storage while chests of drawers are items of furniture (sometimes shortened to chest). So chests of drawers are on the storage page.

See the wiki pages with furniture tag.
