This is a toy chest designed from an Amish style for a friend who needed one for his grandkid’s toys at his home. It is made of red oak plywood and solid wood, lacquered with no stain. Box is 36” long X 17” wide X 18” tall. The finish is two coats of sanding sealer, four coats of lacquer, sprayed.

You did a great job on this Randy. It looks simple and sturdy – just what you want for a toy chest.

Very nice. It’s not over done like a lot of toy chests. Something the child can use his whole life.
