Red cedar building blocks and toy box for my nephew. Lid is removable so it can be put down on carpet to build on. About 70+ pieces. Built 2 red cedar boxes that couldn’t make it past my quality control. So 3rd one is pine and it made it pass QC.

nice :)

I’ve wanted to make blocks for my niece and nephews, but I was never quite sure how many to make and of what shape.

It’s a lot of cutting. I just made it up the shapes and maximized material and tried to minimize cuts. I used a hole saw for the wheels. The outer of the wheels are the arched blocks. One good evening of layout and cutting. The box (boxes) however seemed to take me a long time.
