I built these boxes for my two granddaughters for Christmas. They are for storing there dress up clothes and, as requested by there Mom, are of two different sizes to fit in there closets. Construction is 1/2” birch plywood with lots of screws trimmed out with poplar. I used shellac on the inside and milk paint of the outside (safety as per Mom). The hinges are torsion hinges from Rockler that hold the lid in any position and won’t pinch little fingers. The girls loved them.

I have been wanting to use those hinges but they are just too expensive for me. I have been using these and more recently these. Would still prefer the hinges since the supports always restrict the max opening clearance, but sometimes you gotta roll with it.

Nice Job!
