Hey guys, I haven't posted anything in a while so I thought I would throw this out there!! Local couple adopted this adorable little guy and approached me about building him a toy box!! I dug out some of my best walnut and added a little birch paneling and came up with this. 3 foot by 3 foot by 2 foot tall!! Holds a heck of a lot of leggos!!

Hey Slim,

Great looking chest! It's sure to be an heirloom.

Just a suggestion for safety's sake, you might want to install a hinge damper to prevent the lid coming down on his head. Alternatively, a drop down lid prop that stops the lid from closing all the way can also prevent serious injury.

Cheers,
Tom
