This is my first toy box for my first grandson. Made from red oak. The lumber came from an old barn dating back to the early 1900’s. I believe the boards were milled on the farm. Good history. They were incredibly hard so this box should last. You will see some markings on the wood that are nail holes. Tried to work around them but it is what it is. I really enjoyed the project especially when it is going to someone special.
The finish is min wax golden oak. Not my first choice but it’s what matches the other furnishing, kinda.
The book holder on the end idea I borrowed from other toy chest makers on the web. You can guess who. I just fancied it up a little.
Thanks for looking.
