So, this year saw me making another Treasure Chest for the Gangshow... And this is a how to for it...

I have made a few of these over the years, and if i had the space and utensils, I would make it out of wood, as the construction would be the same.... for the curved top I would probably use some flexi ply or similar...

Anyway for your viewing delight, a cardboard treasure chest.... and an amusing picture of me as a pirate just because its fun and semi-relevant! ( I also made that costume and hat too!)
