Well Christmas is getting close! Our 4 year old loves the “Handy Manny” cartoon so I built a little tool box she can have for her own. A real simple, but fun little project. Some pine, a few brass screws, and a little Danish Oil.

Merry Christmas!

She will love it. This summer my youngest grandaughter and I built a tool box at the local fair. Our lumber yard supplied the material for the kids for two days. Our 2 yr old built her own (maybe I helped). Her older brother and sister were jealous when we went home, the youngest had her OWN tool box and they didn’t. I enjoyed thay day !

I’m sure she will love it. Now fill it with some play screwdrivers, saw, tape measure and hammer to complete the “Handy Manny” team.

Canadianchips… your hobby and your mission match. You made your granddaughter smile!

Broglea… you are right on filling it up. I think I might have to make a little wood mallet as well.

You can fill that toolbox with homemade wooden tools. Saw, Screwdrivers, hammer and so on. I did for my grandson and have since seen plans for those types of wooden tools in various magazines. Hey, they could become your first “together” project. By the way, remember to always stress shop safety. If they learn it early they will learn it forever.

I built three boxes almost identical to yours earlier this summer for my boys and nephew. My boys also like Handy Manny and I too got the idea from that…

My boys love them and so do I. I even have had to borrow one of them from time to time when I am bringing my tools in and out of the house.. I am thinking I need to build one for myself..

Nice work.

Thanks for the nice comments!

Recut – There is safety equipment, but to your point you also need a safe behavior.

Thanks Dan. I am still jealous of those hand tools you just got your hands on. Have fun with them!
