That is very well done. I like it a lot.
And your timing is perfect for a treasure chest. Today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day.

Very nice treasure chest Howie. are those dovetails on the lid? That looks like that might have been tough to do on a coffered lid. Very nice job. I like it allot.
