Call me easily amused but I’m clapping my hands like the mentally challenged (is that what you call em’ these days?) at this DIY Zelda Treasure Chest w/ sound effects. DO WANT! You can put your weed in there, man! Also porn, lots and lots of porn. With the “duh-duh-DUH-DUH!” sound upon opening it be like Christmas every time. Squeee!
I’d never be able to make it myself. I’d somehow wind up super gluing my face to my genitals. Course, I don’t really need to bend that far for that to happen…if you know what I mean. Anyway, hit the jump for instructions and a list of supplies.
1/4″ Pine plywood. You can use whatever type of wood you want, but pine looks nice and is relatively cheap.
You’ll need enough wood to cut out the following pieces:
Two 5.5″ x 10.5″ pieces
One 8″ x 10.5″ base piece
Two 8.5 x 5.5″ pieces
Five 2 7/16″ x 11″ slats
Also you will need two 6 sided half a decagon pieces. This sounds confusing but I’ve included a template to cut these pieces out. Print the template out and cut the pieces to be 8″ wide at the base.
You’ll also need:
Black poster board
A cheap mp3 player
Treasure chest opening mp3
Solder and flux
Some small gauge wire (20 or 22 gauge will work)
SPDT lever switch from radio shack
Small audio amp. I used a cheap ipod speaker amp from the pharmacy.
Enough Black felt to line the inside of the chest, about eight 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheets.
150 black furniture nails.
Long straight edge
A couple black sharpie markers.
Hot glue gun
Minwax Red Oak woodstain
Brush to apply stain with
Pliers or wire cutters
A couple of hinges.
A means to cut your wood.
Uh huh? Well that’s far too damn complicated.
