I built this toy box for my 5 year old grand daughter she has a huge amount oif toys. Hope they all fit. I built it according to her mothers directions almost looks like it could be used as a casket. I hope she don’t get any ideas. Its built from birch plywood and oak for the rails and styles The oak was was rescued from some old pallets that had been stacked up to be burned I ask and they said i could take as much as I wanted….........................Thanks for looking…....................Schloemoe

Yes I did but I think the lids a little heavy they hold it open real good but once it starts down they don’t hold for crap. Guess I need to do something different…................Schloemoe

If you are unhappy with the hinges, try the adjustable friction hinges they have at HD. You just tighten or losen the screw to make it easier or harder to close. I’ve use them a few times and they were fine.
