This toy box was made for a friend’s kid. I made it kinda last minute and I am very pleased with the fact that I was able to put this together so quickly. I think start to finish the construction took roughly 5-6 hours with the exception of gluing up the lid. My friend and his wife were quite pleased, so mission accomplished! The box is of frame and panel construction utilizing pocket screws (easily the one the fastest strong joints that you can use). The frame and lid and pine and the bottom and panels are birch ply. Enjoy and thanks for looking.

Very nice. I wouldn’t have thought of using pocket screw joints…
