This is a toy storage/bookshelf for my grandson. Made with mortise and tenon joinery from solid walnut and walnut ply. It’s approximately 42” wide x 48” tall. Finished with 5 coats of Minwax wipe on poly and 2 coats of Briwax. The last picture shows the method I used for the adjustable shelves. I saw it in Fine Woodworking and thought I’d give it a try. It was pretty easy and I think looks a lot better than metal strips or holes.

nicely done! a beautiful looking piece…and the adjustable shelves are child safe, you don’t have to worry about them swallowing those shelf pins.

Very nice. It would be perfect for any family who does not have dedicated play room for their kids and all of their toys end up in your livingroom… like my family.

Sally that is a great piece. Thanks for reminding us about that shelf support system. I saw it and forgot it but now I will remember it.
Say hi to Sam
