This is what got me started with my woodworking obsession. The box itself is oak ply finished with a light oak poly gel stain. It’s meant to resemble alphabet blocks. I also made the contents of the box, but not in my workshop.

Great looking toy box, but I think the kid needs to be taught that he is suppose to take all the toys out of the box before he plays with them, otherwise how is he going to enjoy himself. Great looking kid! LOL.

That’s great, it keeps the toys from being scattered if he just plays with them in there. Nice work.

Might want to consider a matress in there. This is a great job Allen. Bet that’s what the kid is thinking also!
