Made this for our first granddaughters first Christmas. Hand carved a teddy bear into a basswood panel in the top. The rest is all red oak. Also cut down the top of the front about 1’ so if she closes the lid onto her hand it won’t pinch (she already has done this). The lid supports the top wherever it is opened and left the bottom clear oak so it is lighter to find all those small toys.
Used a combination of biscuit joinery and pockethole joinery with center panels set back from the face frames.
Her dad (my son in law) still has a toy box his grandfather made for him when he was a baby.
