On his first visit to Disney this February My Grandson fell in love with the Pirate Jack Sparrow character and everything Pirates, so for his birthday I thought it appropriate to design/build him a chest for his “LUTE” and worldly possessions (i.e. toys and such) ! The design of the box is glue and joint construction and made with Oak Ply and ebony stained Poplar. I Glued the box assembly as a whole and then cut the lid from the box on the TS. It features rope handles and a child safe lid support,and “Pirate” accents that he can remove as he grows up and out of this phase( as they often do !) The project was some what difficult because of the two tone stain finish,but worth it in the long run. It turned out as expected and He was thrilled with the end results which made it all worth the effort ! Thanks for taking a look and as always be safe !..........ROB
