If you’re limited by tools this may be a good project for you. Every piece was cut with a circular saw and a miter saw (although you could honestly just use a circular saw for the entire project) and was assembled with a pocket hole jig, wood glue, and brad nails. The project was originally going to be a Dukes of Hazard build but I was a little less than confident with the numbers so I just left it orange.

For those who are interested I made a fun video of the build:

And a free set of PDF plans for those who are interested as well:

Have a great day folks!

Just a good ol’ toy box
Didn’t cost a leg and an arm
Beats all you ever saw
Built with a circular saw
And a pocket hole jig

....sorry, it’s a boring morning.

That is going to be a popular project. You took all the difficulty out of the toy box. Not installing a lid is a perfect solution to keeping the expense and difficulty down. I have always thought a lid on a toy box is a bad idea anyway. Your video works is really good. Nice post.
