    no pics!

    but my dad built one for a youngster that was about the size of a large trunck like they used for travel years ago used leather handles and 2 of those cant pinch hinges.. that is amust for youngsters and you need to follow instructions on the postion of them they are tricky to get on to not bind up and not work well...at least dad had trouble i had to fix his miscalulations and after it was done. had a rounded top as well.
    If in Doubt, Build it Stout!

    See www.plesums.com/wood/livingroom/toychest.html for pictures, suggested dimensions, and construction tips. That particular toy chest is in a NYC apartment... the window over the toy box has a view of the Statue of Liberty. Pretty neat.

    Pete one thing that is recommended for toy boxes is to recess the front leading edge so kids can't get stuck or suffocate inside. I made one recently. You can see it at here. http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...ad.php?t=10034
