I wanted to try and put together a toybox/blanket chest, and ended up making 7 of them for grandkids at Christmas 2010. Each one held its own challenges, since there was a time constraint and I’m not not an accomplished woodworker. Applying the finish took its toll on my efforts. It takes practice to get a good finish. I sanded and sanded, but I couldn’t sand enough to remove all the glue from assembly, so the finish suffered on some of them since the stain wouldn’t always cover the glue. (Stain first, then assemble?)
