A mom commissioned me to make this toy chest for her son Patrick. The shop I belong to just acquired a DR4 Leigh Super Jig and here is the result. Learning to use the jig was a bit of a challenge at first but persistence paid off. The name is done with veneer on hardboard masonite. I enjoyed making it but I never did find out if she liked it or not as I was not there when she picked it up. The proceeds go to the community center.

Nice looking chest. I think you got the picture or name messed up in your paragraph. Daniel vs Patrick.
