This is definitely my favorite project of all time. A very close friend of mine asked me to create a toy box for her first grandson. I was given no direction what so ever, she just said to make it as if it were my own and to enjoy it. This is my own plan, which I never wrote down this piece sort of just became what it is. the box is made of walnut and spalted birch. if you look at the pictures you will notice that I incorporated the sapwood into the design of the piece, the sapwood frames the corners as well as borders the breadboard ends. It almost appears that the sapwood is pouring down the corners from the top. I also incorporated a sliding tray into the top of the chest so that the little guy could reach his favorite toys. I hope you all enjoy viewing this one as much as I enjoyed creating it. Thanks for looking.
