Well, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything, but here are some six board chests that I gave as Christmas presents. And they actually got them on Christmas, can you believe it? The first one is my daughters, and the other three were for my niece and nephews. I had been wanting to build six board chests for a while after reading all of CS’s posts about them and thought “Hey! Christmas presents!” I built each one out of a single 1×12 x 8’ board. And at $9 a board that works out to a great bargain for just about the perfect gift for kids. Mine also uses hers for a step stool. Also, I used cotter pins as snipes bill hinges which kept cost down. The chests are about 10”x11”x20” I think. I didn’t really measure them. I just used story sticks and dividers. It was definitely a fun and quick ( 3 hours for each chest ) hand tool project. The only thing is, now all the adults want one too.
