This was a toybox that I made for my nephew in 2005. It was the first “big” project that I had done. I didn’t have many tools, no router, no tablesaw or anything. So the plywood was cut at the hardware store that I bought it from and then trimmed with a circular saw. Panels were made of English Sycamore with a nice curl to it. I cut it into 2 inch strips, and then alternated the grain direction to give a better effect to the way the light caught it. That turned out great when in the light. The toy block lettering was made on the computer, printed, and cut by hand. There’s no real joints here (I think just what’s called “butt-Joint), as I’m just now starting to appreciate actual joints. But it’s still holding up very well, and is the show piece in his room. Gets used :)
