I built these toy chests for my Nieces (they aren’t technically my nieces but I consider them family!), we’ve been talking about it with them and their parents for a couple years now, and one of the twins is particularly interested in my woodworking shop. They always have to look for our cat who is scared of everyone and hides out whenever someone knocks on the door, but usually the cat is hiding out in the shop, and the curious kids always have questions about all the stuff in my shop…. So I wanted to make this video to show them how I made the toy chests, I had much more footage than I first anticipated, and decided that I will break it into 3 parts.
In the first part I am just getting the layout of all the rails and stiles figured out, trying to somewhat bookmatch them, and getting the grooves cut to accept the panels. I started with 2 pieces of birch plywood.
Thanks for looking!
