There is something special about an arched top treasure chest, shown here with a chestnut finish.
The top is formed with many narrow strips of wood. The origin of the shape could be based on its superior
load bearing strength compared to a flat top. Comes in handy should you want to bury it!
Top is secured with brass hinges that are attached with wood screws to the 3/4" pine. Your valuables can
be protected with a padlock that secures a brass hasp. Functional and beautiful too.
