The popular romantic view of Old World pirates probably has something to do with the fact that no one has to deal with them anymore. Still, I couldn’t help but whistle a pirate song when I saw longtime reader Beano_t’s treasure chest.
Kids dig pirate swag, and this definitely qualifies. It looks to measure around a foot and a half long and about as much high, and the lid is cleverly built from pine strips fastened to curved spars to form a nice treasure-chest shape.
It looks like a great project to undertake on a Sunday afternoon. And if this rig is intended for an aspiring, Johnny Depp-influenced buccaneer, then it’ll be quite a gift — though I might be tempted to keep it for myself.
