This toy box is for my Grandson Alex (he’s two) that I have been waiting to finish for far too long.
It is oak veneer and solids, quite simple and includes two of the Rockler toy box safety hinges (two because I ordered the first one under-estimating the weight of the lid). ’=)
Now that it is finger-safe, I have stained the top and sides with Minwax Provincial stain, then brushed on one thick coat of Zinsser gloss urethane. It will likely require a second coat.
The edge of the top and the base trim will be painted immediately after the clear gloss has cured.
