this was made for my wifes aunt.
I made this from one 6” x 12” spruce 12ft long I bought to play with after buying my new ridge planer.
the only screws are in the hinges and stop chain.
I had a lot of fun doing this one.

I really like your design, a nice shift away from traditional slab sided boxes. I’ve been thinking about building a toy box for my girls and I think you have just given me the idea I’ve been looking for. Any issues with using the spruce? Not too wet or sappy was it?

the key to soft wood is to cut wood rough and let dry, take your time and don’t try to dry standing it’s bad news.
