My stepson wanted a lego box to keep some of his things in. We discussed it and decided to make it with a drawer. Everything turned out great until I made the rookie mistake of painting the drawer and inside the box where the drawer goes. Since that didn’t work we decide to make it a shelf.
Both lego’s are exactly 12 times scale. I took some scrap pcs. of 1/2 in. plywood and used my router table to plane 4 pcs. to 1/4 in. thick. I then drilled a hole in the center of 2 pcs. I then set up a jig on the router table to rout out slots in all 4 pcs. The back pcs. are not routed through so that the screw slides within the slots. Next I glued the pcs. together and screwed them to the back of the box. Now it hangs in his bedroom and displays his lego figurines. Happy accident.
The lego’s are made of 3/4 in. thick shelving board. They are painted with Krylon Color Creations acrylic latex enamel gloss indoor/ outdoor paint. Finished with 3 coats Minwax Water-Based Polycrylic clear gloss.
