I made this toy box for a family friend that has been going through some really tough times lately. Her husband has been diagnosed with dementia, his dad passed away last week, and her mother recently lost her battle with cancer.
My wife mentioned that Robin wanted a toy box for the grand kids toys. I said “I can do that”. We delivered it today. No charge for our friendly service. She was very grateful. It’s the least I could do.
White pine, ripped and glued with biscuits to form the panels.
Stained with Minwax Chestnut stain. Finished with 10 coats (sanding with 320) of Deft Clear Wood Finish.
Brass piano hinge. Rockler spring loaded lid protectors. This lid will not mash little fingers.
Hope you like it. She sure does.
