This treasure chest was built out of Sapele and pine wood. The lovely dark cross grain edges of this wood lended itself easily towards using finger joints for the corners. Meant to carry memorabilia and store cannabis products, this is the perfect little box, easy to transport and great at humidity control. 

Bill of Materials:
1- 7' 4" x 10 1/2" Sapele Wood
1 - 13x10 piece of Pine Wood
2 - Latches
2 - 1 1/2" Hinges
2 feet rustic rope for handles
Twine/thing rope for support arm
Danish tung oil
This was my first woodworking project, and was constructed completely with hand tools. Hand sawn, drilled and shaped. I loved the natural grain pattern in the pine wood and knew from the start that I was going to celebrate the grain. I followed the grain on both support beams as well as the end feet, working around the beautiful knots.

I learned so much about woodworking during this project and was so excited to explore the use of power tools. I continued my woodworking journey not only into power tools, but also learned to use CNC machines for even more precision.
