I made this for a guy as a toy box for all his daughters toys. It measures 48” x 18” x 18”. I made it of 3/4” maple. Rabit jointery, glue, and srewed every joint. At the bottom of the box I placed some 11/16” black quater round and used type 2 silicone to hold it in place. (after it was finished) This makes it easier to pick up smaller toys that always get stuck in the corners. There is also a small (1/4”) chamfer along the lid so you can use your fingers to open the box. All the hinges are countersunk in both in the lid and top. If you have any comments or questions please ask.

The quarter round is a great idea.

i agree with cheller, the quarter round is a great idea! are you going to attach a lid support/lock so the lid cant smash the wee little fingers?
