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"
