I know, just another toy box. BUT this box is made from 1×18”wide pine boards. I had the lumber so I just had to try it. All the sides, top, and bottom. The chance of checking or cracking is always present with wide lumber like this but I hope I have supported it well enough to keep it tight. The white pine corners are back cut to allow the full width of the boards to sit tightly in a bed of glue. Inside I also added triangle corners . The Red Cedar straps across the top and front are decorative as well as glued to the pine for more support. . Spring hinges keep the top from falling on our granddaughters fingers. Now I will just keep my fingers crossed for the next couple years and nature will tell the rest of the story.
