A larger cedar chest salvaged from the roadside became a child’s toy chest. Special hinges were used to keep the lid from closing too fast and crushing little fingers. As an added safety feature, openings were created around the top of the chest so very little surface was available where fingers might rest.

Great looking cedar. What did you use for a finish?

I did not use any finish, they wanted to smell the cedar for a year. I will probably be asked to apply a finish in a year and it will be a poly, I think.

Wonderfully thought out design with keeping little hands in mind! Great chest!
