Great looking toy box. I really like all the extra detail that makes it stand out. The corner joints look great as well especially with the square peg look

Somebody is going to have some very happy toys! Very nicely done. What a great design and with an excellent pick of lumber to boot.

Great job!

What is the joinery called that you used on the sides? It looks great, almost too nice to be throwing toys in it.
