My 11 year old grandson asked me to make him a pirate chest that he could lock. So i made him this out of some old white pine. It has a secret compartment that his the release inside.

That is very cool. I know every 11 year old boy like to have secret compartments. Very neat idea.

These are all fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing. Did you have plans for these if so I would love to have them or know where you aquired them. This project has been on my list for quite some time….

Sorry no plans, i just looked at picture from the internet and made own versions. The plans that I drew for all three chests could fit on one sheet of paper both sides. My plans only include the dimensions and sketch of each. The dimensions trend to vary as I build so the proportions look good when they are assembled. If you build a chest with a curved top, I found the easiest way to fit each board is to ship lap the edges.
