What to do with all those leftover scraps from the new deck… I built my grandson a treasure box a few years ago. Well, now little sister is old enough for her own treasure box. I used some redwood scrap ends a friend gave me after her deck was finished. Total size is about 16 inches by 9 inches and 8 inches tall. No hardware…wood handles and sliding lid. I used a natural grain enhancing stain. She likes shiny so it has 3 coats of gloss spar varnish. The name plaque is beetle kill pine with the name burned in. I think she’ll like it

Mike,

Looks great! The picture doesn’t do it justice. I know your granddaughter will like it a whole lot!
