I made this to see if there is a market for toy boxes, having talked with someone who told me there were none available in Fairbanks. This one ended up being a blanket chest but I did get one request for a entry way bench with the same design.

Thanks, finished it with sam maloofs blo-raw tung oil-urethane finish. Jim when I was a chef every dish was created with the idea of what didn’t it need to be great and it appears this philosophy will be in my woodworking too.

Toy box, blanket chest, keepsake box, call it what you will, a good box is always useful. Simple, basic, and to the point. I like it.
