Wife saw this chest on-line and wanted me to buy it ( $1499.00 ). I made it instead ( under $400.00 ).

Very nice and you can buy more tools with the Grand you saved! Imagine the profit that they were making off the high end toy box. What was it made of?
Did you cut a couple of holes in the back for air? My kids had a toy box that had two holes in the back in case a kid got stuck inside. Liability stuff, I guess. That doesn’t count the time my daughter was in a toy box and her little brother sat on the lid. If I recall, there was a lengthy discussion about that.

Nice artwork too. They airholes are a good idea… also helps keep the toys getting moldy.

Brings back memories. I made a big toy box for my girls when they were very young. The toys were usually on the floor and the girls would be in the box.

My experience is same as Gregs – - the Box was the best Toy.

How did you do the artwork?
