Toys for the Christmas Bureau

Here a few simple tool boxes my friend Don and I made for the local Christmas Bureau. Mostly from what we had around the shop. Even the paint was what was available. Took us a few hours on Wednesday night to cut all the parts. Painted the sides separately from the main structure to get good clean lines. Used left over broom handles for the carry handles.

Hopefully they make some kids happy and you never know maybe future Lumberjock members.

Thanks for looking.

A good project for the right reason. We have a Builders for Christ group at our church that go in the summer to build or re-build in needed areas. One year I built 9 totes for the crew. If you cannot go, then find a way to help those that do.

Great project, jb. Know those kids will be using them and their imagination for a long time. Looking at them from that angel the paint combination makes the end look like they extend past the sides. Did you use butt or rabbit joints on them?

Those are really nice. Love the fact you painted them before assembly. Those kids will love them. I made a couple of these similar and added four wood toy tools to the mix, all out of walnut and oak. they were a big hit, so I know this will be too. Great job and thanks for sharing!!!

Nice tote boxes. Good way to get the kids started woodworking—better than electronic toys!!............Jim
