http://www.bconnex.net/~zirgo/treasure/treasure.html A week or three
back, someone wanted a simple project for kids. I'd forgot about this,
it's about as simple, and relatively safe, unless they glue each other
down, as you can get.
Thank you, they made a trivet and enjoyed it.
As it happens, they made this box last summer in scout camp. There were two
glue guns. Those who used the guns made a box; those who stuck to white
glue made a mess.

I did something similar to this once, but with different hinges. My
choice was leather strapping, two pieces all the way around the chest.
It made both hinges and (with a buckle) a catch to keep it shut. A
huge bag of bronzed upholstery tacks also let them personalise their
own chests a little. Leatherworking with pre-cut materials is quite a
fun project for kids too - hole punches and riveting are easy enough
If you're pre-sawing the stock for the lid and you have a jointer with
an adjustable fence, then take the time to cooper the lid strips. It
makes it a whole lot better as a finished product, and it's little
enough extra work if you're making a batch.
