    Toy box for great-granddaughter

    She's not quite 2 months old, but I got the idea to build this for when Ailyss (Irish for Alice) becomes a Big Girl some day.



    Never built any toys before, but there's a first time for everything. I decided to paint this project because the design calls for color, even though the original was done in pine.

    This time I remembered to take pictures of the important steps. It's a simple build, but tricky in some ways.

    So here's the link.

    That's very cool, Dan. I'll bet she's gonna love it.

    Great write-up, too.

    Very nice Dan thanks for sharing it. Your write up is excellent. Like your spray booth idea too. Do you have a fan on the back side or is that just a board standing in there with a cut out in?

    Cool idea been wondering how to deal with spraying one day.
    cheers

    Thanks to all for the compliments. It was a fun project.

    Rob, here's a link to the tutorial on making a spray booth out of PVC.

    I cut mine to five feet in width and about 6' 4" height to clear the open garage door. Cemented the horizontals so it's a knock-down.



    I have a cutout and a 20" box fan with plans to use with furnace filters whenever I get back to using volatile finishes (maybe never). There's a furnace in the back corner of the garage and I don't intend to torch the place.
