If it doesn't have to be a treasure chest you could turn and hollow the barrel and make a lid to top the barrel with. You can simulate the metal hoops by leaving raised areas and then painting those areas. Make staves as described bellow.

If it has to be a chest then turn and hollow and just cut to make the lid. Some lines cut/scored/burned would simulate the staves.

Whatever you end up doing please post a finished picture or two.
