  4. Mini Pirates Chest

    I made this miniature pirates chest for a co-worker out of red oak scrap I had in the shop, that I was able to get 1/4 sawn figure out of. Another co-worker provided the contents- which is how I scaled the chest to size (it's a half gallon). I spent quite a while trying to figure out how to...

  6. Prototype Keepsake Chest

    I had seen this chest on a magazine cover a while ago, and thought it would be a great present for my daughters. This project, with the coopered lid, finger joints, and bent bands, promised to introduce me to some new techniques. In the spirit of Norm, I decided to make a prototype chest out...

  10. Pirate's Booty | Custom

    This is a toy chest that was built around a pirate's theme. The customer ordered a Pirate boat bed with the same picture and wanted a matching chest. I did an arch top design and stained it the same accent colors used on the boat. The lock was an old style lock with a hand forged hasp. When...

  13. A treasure chest

    The box itself is made out of American cherry. The lid is African mahogany, hard maple, and a smidge more American Cherry. I finished the box with 2 coats of satin Osmo Polyx, which is most definitely my favorite finish. It gives a really smooth, well made feel to everything but it still feels...
  14. Pirate's Chest

    I made this as a keepsake chest for my wife. It's all red oak. I steamed the top to bend the planks. The color contrast is just staining. The only thing not solid oak is oak veneer plywood for the bottom. I'm not sure I would make it the same way again, but it was fun, and I learned a bit about...

  19. Treasure Chest for a little over $10

    So my wife asked for a treasure chest to put prizes in for her students. This is what my son and I came up with. We actually made this from less than $2 in wood (2 packs of 25 - 18" wooden garden stakes on sale for $1 per pack) and about $8 in hardware. Not too shabby. Stained with MinWax' Dark...
