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.

Great job Brian.
A real treasure chest to store all the treasures.
Great color on the finish.
Keep up the good work.

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 !
