A free woodworking plans selection of fun projects to build treasure chests. Bring out the fun and imagination with young woodworkers.
What little boy would not love to find one of these in their back yard!?! I looked in vain, all over the internet, for a simple plan for a Pirates Treasure Chest. So I decided to just make my own. I settled on box joints for the corners because they are very simple to make and really strong. Since this will be a Christmas present for my grandson, I better get to work!
The design of my chest uses the lines of the old chest. Mine is only 12 X 7 X 8 1/2 inches. I used a vacuum form mold to make the curved top and dove tails for the joinery. I hope you take the time to make this nice little chest.
