"Game of Thrones" Dragon Egg Chest

Propmaker Eric Hart spent months crafting this recreation of the dragon egg chest from "Game of Thrones".  He not only brings us a detailed build log of the techniques used, but a video of the entire process.  It's a beautiful piece of work.  While you're over there be sure to browse around.  His propmaking blog is amazing.

Sadly, this project has been a source of strife here at Chateau Propnomicon.  I believe "Why don't you do more projects like that?  It would look great in the den." was the wording used.  I console myself that great art is never recognized in it's own time, particularly when your craft is mummified monstrosities.

I love boxes and that one is a real winner. The complexity is outstanding and I always imagine what fine objet might be lodged inside. Here are some links for pretty boxes that would make good props.

But there are some shortcuts available:

Or you can rework a plain existing box with faux strap work, leather coverings, and brass tack work such as with the very common Spanish style jewelry boxes found at junk shops and on line.
