Very nice. I have the same question as Tooch. Did you steam press the moulding on the top?

Thanks folks!
Yes, the trim on the top is steamed and bent. The top is solid White Oak that I built up with mitered 5/4 stock and then rounded it over. The box is standard frame and panel construction.

Nice treasure chest—looks like something you’d see in a sea captain’s cabin!
