Pirate treasurer chest

Pirate treasurer chest for my oldest grandson of 6. He keeps it beside his bed and keeps his “valuables” locked inside so his two brothers can’t get them. I cut the pirate symbols on scroll saw from A grade plywood and painted them with water colors to give an aged and faded texture. Also the bottom is lined with green felt and there is a sailing ship on inside of the lid. In keeping with the pirate theme, every time they visit I have a treasurer map drawn showing the way to a new toy hidden in the house. The 4 of us have a clubhouse in my sanding room in the shop and we go down there eat dreamsicles, Oreos and blow balloons up with the air compressor. Such fun. They are the joy of my life.

Woods: a grade plywood soft maple

Tools: band saw table saw planer belt and disc sander
