This is the latest toy box that I have made. It is made from Sapele and has a Tongue Oil finish. The top is made from a single wide board that I had saved for probably about 10 years.

Very nice!. I like everything about this chest; design, wood choice, fit and finish!

I love the look of that top and the design in general is really well done. Sapele is such a beautiful wood, you really took advantage of its natural look.

That looks really clean and well-made. How do you form the breadboard end joints? Are the floating panels veneered?

Beautiful chest. Almost too nice for a kid just to fill it with toys :-)

I have a grandson who has ordered one similar to this one. You have set a high standard here.

The breadboard ends house 3 tennons each about 3-1/2” to help keep the lid flat and are held on with Wenge pins that I made on a dowel plate. They are completely free floating, I gave them a good bit of room to move because the top is flat sawn.

There are many that agree. This is my third fourth toybox, the other 3 were of Oak, the last two had raised panels. The thought behind the design is so that it can fit in almost anywhere and when the child gets older they can continue to use it for the rest of their life.
