Here is a toy chest I made for my brother for christmas when he had his first child. I know it isnt safe as it should be. I have been meaning to get around to install a toy chest safety hinge. But when i was doing this, I didn’t look for any hardware except for the hinge. I did install rubber stripping around the edges along with rubber bumper pads. I slammed it on my fingers several times and i couldnt feel it. The lid is too heavy for a little kid to lift. I guess I will know better next time.

This is another good looking piece, Joe. The finish and stain look pretty good and the onlays add nice details to the chest.

nice project, but, yes, little hands will get hurt. those “stay” hinges are nice, but, kind of expensive in my book.
