A simple white pine box, with 1/2×3/4 aspen strips glued on the top. I made it for a white elephant Christmas gift exchange. Great fun!

Nice little chest. The last ones I made were red Oak and I used bent oak veneer for the curved tops.

Very cool. My son has too many toys. I would like to make a larger toy chest. Great work!

Love it. I’d done one of those a few years ago out of Eastern Red Cedar for my grandson. Didn’t put any sliding shelving in like you did. I like that.

I love that you can still see the individual pieces of wood from the side of the treasure chest. It’s a helluva lot of effort for a gift exchange and I think anybody receiving the storage chest from you is going to be very pleasantly pleased with what they pulled out of the Christmas party!
