After a bit of finish work such as, sanding and shaving, this little box is fantastic! My wife loves it.

Really impressed with how well this hinge works. It's tight but if you take a heat gun or hair dryer and very briefly heat up the hinge parts it will give you just enough room to pop the pieces together. They're very solidly locked in. I'm impressed.

I'm running into a lot of problems with the arms breaking off when I try to attach the two parts. Any suggestions?

This is very cool. It reminds me of when I was kid, maybe in first grade and lost a tooth while at school. My teacher gave me a tiny plastic treasure chest to put the tooth in for safe keeping. That chest was my prize possession for close to a year till I lost it. It is funny the things we remember from our chile hood.

VERY COOL!   MADE IT 50% BIGGER.  HAD TO MELT THE HINGES TOGETHER.  ADDED TRIM COLOR WITH GOLD SHARPIE

@athey, what's that on your profile pic? is it a printable model?

Awesome work, I'll be printing this as soon as my current piece gets out of the printer!

The thing in my profile pic is a piece of the zelda shoulder pauldrons that I created for my daughter's Zelda Ocarina of Time cosplay. I don't have the files for those available for anyone else though. I'm not sure yet if I'll share them or not. They're finished now though - they're on my tumblr, but I think you'll have to go back a page or two to get to the pictures - http://aya-macchiato.tumblr.com/http://aya-macchiato.tumblr.co...

very nice!

What did you model this in?

Autodesk Maya. Whipped it up in about a half an hour because we needed a last-minute wedding gift for a friend. Planned on just getting one of those 'money cards' but they were all lame. So instead, I modeled a zelda chest and we put the cash inside it.
