My son loves lego’s so i took an old chest and modified it to look just like a lego block. He thought it was great. Inside it has two removable compartments for organized storage.

Hi Eagle,

This is a nice toy chest. I may have to “borrow” your idea. My grandsons have a ton of these are stored in baskets now.

Thanks for the post.

Eagle, Welcome aboard.
That looks great, I too may need to borrow this idea. Do you happen to have any pictures of the inside of it?

Hi Eagle

What a great idea! This has to go in my favorites. I have some ideas for using this concept. When I get the shop up and running I will show you what I have in mind. Thank you for posting.

God Bless

Hi Eagle…

I just finished signing up for Lumberjocks right before you checked out my project. I see that Lego projects are popular with the kids here. Your Lego chest is a neat idea for storage & a seat for the kids to sit on while building with the Legos. I built a Thomas the Train table for my Grandsons & my wife purchased(?) a box of similar size to your Lego chest for them to store & sit on while using their Thomas stuff. It has a removable “sit-apon” cushion on top.

Wow! The ideas from Lumberjocks sure come at ya fast! I’m sure happy I signed up!

You need to make a few hundred more and build something…

I wish I’d have had one of these when my 24 year old was little! We had a massive collection. I’ll tuck this idea away for grandchildren :)
