A Toy Box for Grandma

Recently, we donated our toy box to a fundraiser for a family friend in bad health and high medical bills. My wife asked if I would build a bigger one, so I/we did.

I used laminated project panels purchased at the big box store. That saved a lot of time gluing up panels and sanding late into the night!

Rustoleum KONA stain, Rockler torsion hinges and handles

This wasn’t our first one and probably won’t be the last.

During the process of building, staining and finishing the box, we had a little help along the way from our grandkids. Right down to the youngest grandson.

Bella applying glue to the floor supports.

And learning how to use the drill/driver to drive the screws

Bubba wanted to help also.

Angelo came to visit and helped with the staining.

Today, Angelina came to visit and helped us install the hinges and fill it up.

Nice to get everybody involved. So in years to come, they can ALL proudly say “I helped build that!”

And it looks like your video library is pretty much the same as ours LOL

Yes sir. Grandma won’t get rid of them so I had to build a cabinet for them.

Thanks everyone. They are always willing to help. “Grandpa, are you ready?” is what I hear a lot. They don’t want to miss a thing! :-)

Angelina got to be the official fill-’er-upper!
