This was the first time I was commissioned to do a piece. A friend at work asked me to build this toy box for her son (see last picture with him sitting on top). I wanted to do this for cost so I used Cottonwood. Smells like cat pee when you cut it, but works well with power tools. Finger joints for joinery and poly for the finish.
Lesson learned from this project? Anti-slam hinges are confusing. I couldn’t figure out how this hinge was going to work just by looking at it. Follow the directions for installation – and works like a charm!
