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"
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. <br>1m=39.3700787in <br>39.3700787 / 16 = 2.46062991875 <br>rounded up every pixel in minecraft is 2.5 inches so 2.5 * 14 = 35in. <br>Thats only if you want it to American scale if you want it to Authentic scale it would be <br>1m=100cm <br>100 / 16 = 6.25 cm (each pixel) <br>6.25 * 14 = 87.5cm
Using &quot;MY SCALE&quot; of 1inch=1pixel.
<p>I'm just saying for authenticity if anyone wants to make it to exact scale</p>
<p>you people don't get it. Leave your math at home. You don't need it</p>
<p>Actually each pixel is worth 2.63 inches Sooo...your caulculations are wrong....Your chest is to small.</p>
<p>um your actually wrong there smart guy. It's still at scale. He could make each grid box whatever size he felt like. As long as he used 14 x 14 grid boxes. Don't you hate when you pat yourself on the back cause you believe your smarter than everyone else but in reality your mouth speaks faster than your mind</p>

Can u build a crafting chest?
Do more do more!
Cool you should find more stuff to build!
Cool good idea
That's so cool u could keep things in it too
nice job! keep building!
That's cool
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.
how tall is it without the lid
how tall is it without the lid
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. <br>
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.
