Evening all,

After a heat wave and a juggling the kids being home for summer I have managed to get going on my next large pirate themed prop for my channel. This chest has been a ton of work, but it's coming together real nice! Net week I am adding the treasure and some additional aging to make it look authentic as possible!

Hope you enjoy the journey if you end up watching!

Thanks Roxy! I think I overdid the size just a tiny bit.... and by a tiny bit I mean a lot. The thing is massive, which in turn made everything on it take more work.. I have enjoyed it, but am glad this week is the final video of the build. lol

Looks really nice. Now to fill it with some treasure. You know, someone on here posted a quick "tutorial" on casting your own pirate doubloons. They would look pretty good in your treasure chest if you ask me.

A bit of a sneak peek on this weeks video. I went with simple poker chips, It uses SOOOO many. I may add some sculpted coins at a later date, but the poker chips did great for the time being :)

Great work! Glad to know I’m not the only one that has had a prop size get away from me. Living that dream right now ha ha! This turned out really well.

Lol, thanks all! It was a interesting build to say the least. Now my living room wall is being converted into a arched wall.. I love this time of year, and I set it up where my fall decor rolls into my halloween decor. Allows me to start decorating at the beginning of September! lol
