This is a treasure chest I made for my daughter a while ago. I had some scrap Douglas fir and tried my hand at makeing a curved top. Good thing I had alot of scrap because it took two tries to get the top with no gaps. The inside id lined with red cedar. This chest is only about 14 inches wide 8 inches deep and 10 inches tall. The hardware is black iron, the “bands” are painted and its finished with a high gloss poly.

The red cedar add a very nice contrast to the fir.
