A container with 9 slots.

-Scrapbook Description

A Chest is a storage Structure. It requires 3 Boards to build and a Science Machine to prototype. It has 9 storage slots. Items can be stored in a Chest by dragging them onto it or by opening the Chest to place them in specific slots. Chests help keep items better organized than by dropping them on the ground. Animals also cannot eat Food kept in Chests except for Splumonkeys, who can knock items out of them as well as Bearger. Also, Krampus is able to break Chests in order to steal the items inside.

Backpacks, Piggybacks, and Krampus Sacks cannot be stored in Chests, even if the containers are empty. However, they can be used as an alternative storage space if for some reason the player is unable to craft a Chest.

In both Sandbox Mode and Adventure Mode, Chests are occasionally found pre-built in the world. These are natural Set Pieces and they may contain traps set by Maxwell, causing various effects such as:

During Summer, Chests, as with many structures, can spontaneously combust. A smoking effect will appear, in which time the player must either extinguish the smouldering. Using one's hands causes damage. If this is not done in time, the object will combust and burn. The alternative way to solve this is by using a Scaled Chest.

The chest can be upgraded if you use Elastispacer on it. Updated chests will not have a stack limit. The updated chest differs from the usual one in its very elongated model, as well as a golden frame in the UI design of the inventory. An item in a chest that exceeds its stack limit will be taken from the chest according to the maximum stack of the item

Collapsed Chest

If you destroy (burn) a Large Chest that contains a large number of items, then instead of items falling out, a broken version of it will appear in its place. You can get out of it one item at a time that was wounded in it. Or you can completely restore it by spending the necessary resources on it, in which case the chest will be restored with all the resources inside.
