Dreadnought Box

Constructed while reading Moby Dick, I wanted to make something that might be found in the sea-chest of Captain Ahab. Hinges made from walnut. Homemade copper nails. Salvaged pine. Artifact that I found near an Aztec pyramid when I was like ten, before I knew you weren't supposed to take things like that.
