Nice work. I like the wood selections, I’ve never worked with shellac like that, but the finish looks really good.

brother im still learning my self it takes as much practice as wood working. weighing the shellac flakes with the denatured alchol to working with the shellac it drys resally fast. but i love the old school look over urethane.

Do you have a plan or sketchup design for this you can share? I’m mostly interested in how you did the top. Can you describe that. Is it rabitted around the top with the slats bevelled to fit longwise against each other smoothly?

I really like it. I too would be interested in plans for this. My daughter has been asking me to make her one for some time now.

That’s so cool! I’ve been thinking about making a treasure chest on a smaller scale (maybe half the size of this one) for my son. He loves to play pirates, and has a bag full of all of the pretend jewels that we can dump inside. I need to call him over here so he can see yours!
YEP…you get my son’s sign of approval….he says wowwww that’s awesomeeeee!!! : )
