My personal treasure chest design.

Crafted out of Clear Pine and Cherry for the trim work.

A wedding present with 200 gold dollars in the middle coconut shells. The rest is filler “fake treasure” from a party store.

I had a lot of trouble with the compound miters on the cherry trim. Turned out okay, did not have time to finish the chest with any product, due to time constraints.
