Toy Box for my niece’s baby boy. He’s still a few weeks from coming into this world, so it looks like I got a project done on time for a change. Alder, walnut, using loose tenons in mortises cut from my mortise pal. Several coats of Watco natural danish oil followed by a few coats of beeswax. Also used 2 Rockler toy box lid supports for safety.

Ron, thats a sharp looking toy box You have made there.I like the design and contrasting woods and the finish came out great as well. Making something for family members is always rewarding and I am sure this piece was well received. Nice job and stay safe !
