Captain’s Treasure Chest. Cherry chest with brass strapping. This is the second one of these I have done. A fellow bought the first as a graduation present for his grandson, and he wanted another one for a second grandson who will graduate next spring. This box is approx. 5.5×8.5 and is hinged with a wooden leaf hinge. The leaf is glued into the lid and rotates in the kerf in the box side, captured by a steel pin. The corners are mitered and pinned with oak dowels and the bottom is lined with black velvet. The finish is hand-rubbed poly.
