This toy box, legacy chest, hope chest is made from 4/4 “rainbow poplar.” It is an inexpensive and abundant wood available here in Tulsa. (maybe everywhere) It works easily and after it is finished seems very stable.
I pick through the wood stacks to find the pieces that look as if they will yield all of the colors that can make a project eye catching. Black, nearly white, full spectrum of greeens, and purple. I use a finish of 3 coats of clear poly.
This box is 22” x 22” x 32”. It has a full length piano hinge and 2 spring-loaded closure supports to protect little (and big) fingers.
Thanks for looking
