My son asked me to make a box to keep the pieces of their LEGOS and it occurred to me: Why not make it as one of LEGO blocks.

I did it with pine plywood and MDF, take the dimensions of the block and I did toy 12 times bigger.

My son really liked.

If you step on that LEGO in the middle of the night, your foot will hurt for sure!! Maybe your knee…

That paint job makes it look almost like plastic!

Nice looking project!

That’s great. I’d have to make about 25 of those to fit all the Legos in my house. I do love it though.

Appropriately designed! I like the shape as an architectural design even without the refference to the toy.

Nice! My nephew might need something like this. What kind of finish did you use?

Ten comments, ten favorited, you are going to receive the most sincere form of flattery very soon.
I love Lego’s but my younger grandkids still think I’m helping them to build things.

Hello ebbflow to paint this project, apply a primer of Sherwin Williams and then two coats of enamel Serwin Williams, the color code is: SW2910. I share the links where you can see more information.
