Here’s the last of the Toy Chests. It still makes me laugh that I had wanted to do three of these in a six month time span. That was a year and a half ago.

THE difference between the 1st one and these is the addition of clouds on the left and the sun on the right. I had high hopes that my oldest artist would sketch me up a Noah to put on here but I was so over bending over the scroll saw I couldn’t imagine taking the time to cut, sand and fit one more thing together. So, no Noah.

As usual, it seemed I did the animals in most the same order as the first, starting with the giraffes and ending with the zebras. Plus, the elephant-water buffalo-camels medley were the bane of my existence. No matter how much pre-planning went in invariably the water buffalo horns had to be remade to make the whole thing fit.

The boss is none to happy that all three were gifted away but I’ve promised I’ll make her a copy, one day. But first I’ve got a sofa table, shadow box and TV stand to build/finish. Hopefully I’ll forget all the “fun” that went into the first three so I can do number four with a fresh mind-set.

The good news is that a niece on my side and a nephew on her side that got a toy chest, though the surprise was gone it was still fun to deliver these.

Can’t wait to get onto something new….yeah!!

Very cool. I really like how you used the grain patterns.

That chest, with out a doubt is one of the best combinations of design, wood choice and craftsmanship I seen. I can see how it could be very labor intensive, but the results speak for it’s self. Excellent work.
