This blanket chest will be used by my granddaughters to store their toys so this is a pine toy chest. It was made from southern yellow pine. Its design progressed as time past. That occurred first and once I discovered or realized the plan I was going to follow was going to be very small; from this point it became “a design as you go” project. Since children are going to be using this I added torsion hinges so little fingers do not get hurt and I added a lid stop with sliding dovetail cleats to the lid in case a young grandson is tempted to open the lid and stand on top of it. Now with the lid stop that will be impossible; it can’t lay back in the open position, but the with the cleats the lid should stay flat and strong.
