So, I’d definitely consider myself a beginner woodworker, and I rediscovered my love of it when my wife needed a toybox for all my daughters stuff. This is my first project since shop class in highschool. I definitely got inspiration from fellow LJs, but I had no plan, I just made it as I went. I now see several areas that I would have done differently, but I suppose that’s all part of learning. I still need to put handles, the supports underneath the lid, and a mechanism that stops the lid from tilting to far backwards. I didn’t want ‘floating panels’ as I wanted to try something a little harder, so every panel fits into a slot on the horizontal and vertical pieces of the frame. I finished with 2 coats watco danish oil, and 5 miniwax wipe on poly. I had tons of fun building this! Thanks to everyone that had no idea they were helping me, haha.
