My niece’s third birthday just came along and she needed a nice solid place to store all her toys! I personalized it with her name on the front and a piano hinge lid in the back. Most of the body is made with pine barn boards (some tongue and groove, sides were plain 10” wide pine). Lots of wood glue and pocket holes to keep the whole thing together. I had a hard time positioning the hinge so that it opened properly so there are numerous small patched holes along the back but otherwise, I’m fairly happy with how it turned out.
For those who are interested, my niece’s reaction was real surprise and she screamed “Oh my gosh!” Before proceeding to fill the whole thing with all her toys! That reaction made the 60+ hours of work worth it in my eyes!
Let me know what you think of it!
