Someone at work asked me to make this for her daughter. She loved it when i delivered it. I used MDF for most of the construction except for the legs i used pine wood. turned out good.

Very nice looking toy box. I have built two for our Grandkids and have another one to build in the shape of a frog…that should be fun. I like the colors you used…

Gee, what was her name? Great looking letters and such fun colours. Nice work.

I REALLY like how you made it almost impossible for little fingers to get pinched under the lid should it slam down (or intentionally forced down by a jerky older brother).

I really like this – do you have any dimensions or pics of the construction? How did you do the joinery?

I’ve been wanting to make a toy box. I’ve put it off because I was concerned about fingers getting smashed. This design will work. Thanks for sharing! I like the other one you made too.

Have your say...
