Just completed a couple toy boxes for my children to use for my grand children. Made out of red oak and cherry. Carved last name initial in each box.

Those are truly beautiful. You did a wonderful job carving those initials. They’re going to be treasured for years.

Thanks. I stained panels with wiping stain. Sprayed the boxes with a formula of acetone 50%, brushing lacquer 33% and lacquer thinner 17%. Then rubbed and waxed.

Good look and excellent design. I really like these. I also like the way you did the lid. A gap for no smashed fingers. Was that planned? Just beautiful, good job!

Thank you. Yes that gap was important to the deign. It was basically frame and panel construction. I like the way the soft close hinges add to the safety.
