I made this for a friend of ours when their son turned 4. It’s big enough for him and his cousin to sit in with the lid closed.

Pine and Poly are the materials used, a picture from the web and a helping hand from my wife.

Great job Don. My daughter likes this look so much, she wants me to make one for my Grandson. It looks lile this was made using pre-glued stain grade pine panels for the sides. Or did you join all sides from stock?
Thanks
Tony

Hey thanks Tony…

True confession – yup, the sides are pre-glued pine panels from Home Depot (blush)
It was one of my earlier projects and I made it for our friend’s son for his birthday. Just seemed so much easier making it from the panels.

Quick and dirty….
