I made this toy box for my niece, I had done some searching for interesting ideas and came across this design. It is made out of birch plywood, the inside of the box is painted and the tree branch is actually a 1/32” thick piece of plywood from a local hobby store that I stained and glued in place. Finished with General Finishes Enduro water based poly.

What a great build. With warm colours and an evocative design this will be a long term hit.
When mom says clean up the toys she just tosses them in and then later just empties everything out to have a cool popup crawl space. A favorite uncle for sure.

Fantastic toy box! Great design and attractive colors. Like the opening and the holes as pulls. I’m sure your niece enjoyed using it.

Have your say...
