Okay, so here is the story. My friend Patricia Bentley, an incredibly gifted artist was telling me one day that
she wanted a Pencil Box for all her colored pencils, "Something simple" she told me. Well, I have never
been one for simplicity and I had just finished watching the entire Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy. It was
supposed to be for her birthday which is the first day of Summer and I finally finished it 3 months after
that! After the second month of coming out into the shop, she stopped believing that it was a really ornate
pot for plants. Now she says it is too pretty to use as a pencil box and she wants me to build a custom stand
for it.....next is the pirate ship.
The entire treasure chest is hand forged wrought iron and weighs close to 50 lbs empty.
