I built this toy box for my nephews just got it done in time for Christmas. I bought the set of plans awhile back and finally got around to building it. It had some challenges but was really enjoyable to build then I had a graphics place cut and apply the graphics. I have no idea how many hours I spent as I worked on it before and after work but it was a bunch! The color scheme is similar to one I used to run when I worked at another railroad and always liked it.

-- Work- helping fill out my workshop but giving me no time to use my toys.
