JKJ,

You are correct, I used a Forstner bit with a short extension to make my way into the wood blank.
One half fits into the other half in the middle of the cylinder "box". After hollowing the cylinders I
joined them together and finished turning and sanding the exterior of the "box'. This is a fun game
to play with the grandson because we also get to teach him the concept of directions North, South,
East and West so he can apply these skills later on in life. You can also take a photo and print it out
on the printer and provide clues to the treasure location. I used some Teak Wood Rounds to make the
box with as this wood is soft and easy to drill into. The one I made was about 2" in diameter and about
12" long.
