This is a toy box that a friend and I built for his little girl as a Christmas present.
Case construction is birch ply with Red Oak Rails. He wanted a simple design, so we didn’t go through the trouble of using raised panels.
Measures 48” wide x 24” deep x 24” tall.
Finished with Mahogany Bri-Wax over light brown tinted shellac. This was my first time using Bri-wax. I was thrilled with the finish, just not the amount of buffing time that it took to get to that point!
Now let’s see how long it stands up to his 3 year old. I suspect a coat of poly in its future.
