My grandson (age 10) and I worked on this together. He wanted a tool box for some of his tools.
We threw the sink at this: Pine sides, Cedar ends, Padauk and Oak handle, Hardboard removable tray and Walnut buttons.

I told him I would put snacks in the bottom tray but he wanted tools. I’ll have to keep working on him…..........

Great idea! I like it and I’m sure your grandson will always treasure it.

Great job, my oldest grandson is still only 3 but I might start working on one of those soon anyway. I could build one our of lightweight wood or thinner plywood for now and when he gets older we could build one together from some nice wood.
