This handsome wooden chest, adorned with a piratical skull and crossbones imposed over a nautical map, is perfect as a keepsake box, gaming case, or any other function a small treasure chest could accomplish. Created from 1/8-inch grade "BB" birch plywood, with high resolution laser engraved artwork and a dual staining process for an extra level of detail. Due to the manner of it's construction, this chest is very resilient and durable, with double layers at important structural points and bracing that also lends greatly to it's appearance. The top is hinged with a clever wooden hinge system. As an added elegant touch, the interior is padded with EVA foam and lined in jeweler's velour* as further protection for the items stored within. Powerful N52 magnets keep the lid securely closed. This chest would make a great gift for fans of the Pirate Age, and sure to last for many generations - certainly longer than the Golden Age of Piracy itself!
} Please Note: The prototype box pictured has one minor design flaw in the form of the piece of frame that is lower than the 'latch' on the box front. This has since been corrected in the design files, though no new physical model has been created - yet!
