This is a toy chest that was built around a pirate’s theme. The customer ordered a Pirate boat bed with the same picture and wanted a matching chest. I did an arch top design and stained it the same accent colors used on the boat. The lock was an old style lock with a hand forged hasp. When attaching the panels, I decided to leave the heads of the rounded head square drive screws showing for decoration. Pine wood was used on this project.

These chests really are nice. Congratulations on a job well done.
