This is a scale replica of a chest from minecraft. The one from the game is 14X14X14 pixels in size so i made mine to scale at 14"X14"X14" (1pixel=1inch). Even the wall thickness is 1" wide. I used a sheet of 1/2" sanded pine and doubled up each piece and glued them together to get the 1" thick walls. After that i just glued and screwed it together, ran it through a table saw to make the lid, sanded, painted it, attached front latch with screws from the inside, added hinges and finished. Makes a neat ottoman, footstool, extra chair, storage, step stool, or whatever you can think of.

top and bottom 14"X14"
front and back 14"X12"
sides 12"12"
latch 2"X4"

cool I will be building this for my room along with the weighted portal cube.

I haven't been able to find this chest - is it still available on the website, or anywhere else?

Could you be more specific on your directions? I need a little bit more detail on how to make it :)

It has been said that a minecraft block is 1m in real life so to get one to scale you'de have to do some math.
1m=39.3700787in
39.3700787 / 16 = 2.46062991875
rounded up every pixel in minecraft is 2.5 inches so 2.5 * 14 = 35in.
Thats only if you want it to American scale if you want it to Authentic scale it would be
1m=100cm
100 / 16 = 6.25 cm (each pixel)
6.25 * 14 = 87.5cm

Using "MY SCALE" of 1inch=1pixel.

I'm just saying for authenticity if anyone wants to make it to exact scale

Oh, we'll I feel out nerded, this can't be happening! Noooooo! WHYYYY!

In the original versions of minecraft chests were 16x16x16. But after an update the size changed to 14x14x14 making them small than any other regular block. I just played and counted the pixels on a chest in game to get my measurements.
Just so you know if you're not a minecraft nerd, blocks are 16x16x16 not 14x14x14, just in case you want to make this use the measurements with 16 not 14, also look at a reference picture( best found in google images by searching papercraft chest.

They fit in between the top and bottom piece, and the front and back.

how are the sides 12"x12"?
you should add the 28 slots inside the chest like in the game.
Great project! However, I would like to see one 3' x 3' even though it maybe be impractical it would be game-accurate.
hey could you send a more detailed guide? I want to make this but its not detailed enough for me to piece it together

Nice! I like how you scaled 1 pixel=1 inch. it gives you a nice guideline.
Thanks for the idea.
