Toybox for a John Deere crazy grandson. The hardest task in this project was the paintjob! Used 1X6 tongue/groove carsiding, 2X4’s and 1/2” plywood. Roller casters on bottom for easy moving. Authentic John Deere colors. The box is 4’X 21” .I planned on using heavy duty lid supports (Rockler product) as the lid itself is 20 lbs. but decided to take the lid off until the kid gets a little bigger… Fun project. I made a similiar but smaller dimensioned box in two-toned pinks for a little girl who lives in the same household. —dj

That is a most excellent toy box! I have a couple to make with a different theme – Nerf dart guns.
