Our niece’s baby turned 1 this week. My wife wanted me to build a toy box for him. Apparently they are grooming him to be a cubs fan because that’s the theme she wanted. The box is made from MDF. I used my Kreg pocket hole jig for all the joinery. The graphics were all cut on my scroll saw.

Neat toy box. I like the scoll saw stuff, makes a simple toy box seem much cooler. I bet the kid loves it. Very nice job!

Great job Steve. I am sure he will love it as he grows up using it. I am a big fan of pocket hole joinery. For an application like this they really add strength to the joint. I am sure that will be tested many times. I could see a photo 3-4 years down the road with a little head peeking out of the box.

If I could be so bold as to add a suggestion for slight change in the design. A Phillies’ logo would look great on the front. :-) Seriously, it is a really nice toybox and will be cherished by your neice and your nephew for a long time.

Very cool toy box Steve ! I like the additional accents to the outside. I built a toy box for a young family member as well and it is a good feeling to give something from the heart and knowing that it will be used for many years to come. Great work once again !
