Blanket chest / Toy box

I made this chest for my granddaughter, who is only 4 months old. She can use it as a toy box, then keep it as a blanket chest – her first piece of furniture. It’s just pine. I trimmed the panels by hand and found it faster and just as accurate as building a fixture for my table saw. I did make a jig to cut the box joints. Anyway, it was fun to build. Someday, I hope she appreciates her grandpa’s gift.

That table saw looks just like mine. I got it on Craig’s list for $100. and the guy threw in a couple of metal stands one of which my planer sits on. The other is holding up one of my chop saws. It works well for me.

I bought the saw new, from Sears, when we transferred back from Germany to the states in 1989 and bought our first house. I don’t remember what it cost then – maybe $250 (?).
