This mahogany toy box was made for my daughter Gabriella. The four sides are made of solid mahogany, and the top and bottom are both mahogany veneered plywood. The top piece is edge banded and biscuited with solid wood and mitred at the corners. The through dovetails were routed using my new leigh super jig. Actually, It isn’t new, its just the first time I’ve used it. The hinges are standard full overlay Euro style hinges and the lift supports are for safety. She approves. Thanks for looking.

A very nice toy box, the mahogany looks great. I am a router jig joint maker too….I am not very good at hand cut joints…Well done.

Very lucky little girl to have a well crafted toy box made specially for her. I’m sure she will treasure it forever. Great job!
