The following pictures are what I took as I made the chest. I will add the dimensions for the cut parts when I make it back home and get this information. I did not want to post anything about this chest until AFTER I gave it to her. :)
The first 2 pictures are of the bottom layer of the chest.
The next 5 pictures are how I made the middle layer of the chest.
The next pictures are when I added the bottom 2 layers of the chest to the top layer.
Lining in the bottom drawer.
Starting the "Pirate Chest" lid:
I started with just the ends in the shape I wanted, but found that the
length was too long for the "wooden slats" across the top, so I added
a middle support.
I also added additional support at the ends that included a
"hidden compartment" of sorts!
