These are two toy boxes that were supposed to be last year’s Christmas presents. Only three months behind schedule is amazing for some of my projects. I delivered these today and the recipients were very happy!

Wood used is 3/4” pine for the sides and top with 1/8” thick redwood trim. The bottom is made from 1/2” plywood.

These are great. The curved lids really make them unique.

Well done. These could be used for a number of different things, but they are very nice toy boxes.

Thank you all for the positive feedback. Much appreciated. If ever done again there are a few things I’d do differently, such as lighten the lids a tad. To compensate I added spring-loaded lid dampeners to keep them from slamming shut on little fingers.

Enjoy!

Very sharp looking treasure chests, I like the coopered tops ! I was under a time restraint as well (Grandsons Birthday !) So I went with a flat top design which allowed me to deliver on schedule (this time) LOL ! Once again,Great job and thanks for sharing !

Four years later these boxes have seen and stood up to the use rough boys can give them. The only thing different I’d recommend doing is making lighter weight tops. The boy’s mother has recently removed the lids and set them up back to back like a barrel. She is going to re-purpose them as a display case by hinging them together and putting shelves inside. The box portions are still being used to house toys.
