    toy box

    here`s some of that ash i got over the weekend...decided monday afternoon that maybe my son would like a toy box for his b-day that`s commin` up.
    it`s not exactly osha approved for kids with no soft close features but life ain`t osha approved either....i think he`ll do fine, the lid stay is large and clunky for ease of operation by 3 y/o paws...

    You did this in a couple of days? It would have taken me that long to mill the stock!

    Darn, you're good.

    Nice chest. (That's not a come-on, so no PM's please.)

    Hey Tod, I think this is only the second time I've seen you post your work on a forum. I was kinda shocked when I saw the thread.

    Either way, great work. Looks safe enough to me and I'm sure your son will love it. Specially when its full of toys.

    As great as the toy box is, I want to see the wooden toys Tod makes to fill it!!!
    The build/design doesn't include a soft close, what about a shock like on minivan rear doors. Then it could go down slowly. Not only fingers, but teeth, noggins, and such take a heck of a beating from toy boxes. DAHIK

    Very well done Tod. I made one for my daughter, but it was out of cheap pine I had laying around, no dovetails and painted. The only thing it had in common with yours was no soft closure....whoops only took me one time of smashing MY fingers in it to change that.

    A great looking toy chest that should become an heirloom. I hope you sign and date the bottom so that one day the great-great grand kids will know who loved 'em....
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.
