This is a maple sword with walnut handle and a cypress treasure chest for my grandson.
The lid is 10 pieces 12” long 1” wide by 3/4” thick. I beveled the edges at 5 degrees then laid them face up taped the joints together flipped them over and glued the joints then rolled the outer edges into a u shape and clamped them with a bungee cord. After then glue up dried I installed the end caps, then sanded the top to a nice smooth curve. The base is machined to match the finished top dimensions.
