pirate treasure chest – toy box

A very special little girl turned 2 years old this past month, so for her second birthday I wanted to make sure she had an awesome toy chest in which to keep the many toys that I fully expect her parents to spoil her with in the next many years.

I love pirates, and I think that most little kids love pirates, so I decided to make this a “pirates chest.” However, I wanted it to be something that she could potentially keep and use even into adulthood (obviously for purposes other than toys), so I made it less comic-book-pirate and more real-life pirate.

Also, this was a very complicated process that I completed in about a day, so I didn’t take time to thoroughly document the method…So this is just a series of pictures showing the progress. I hope to make another one for another special child in my life, so if you want better instructions, look for that post later.
