I built a toy box for my great nephew. It's made from pine, plywood and hardboard. the lid is fastened with a piano hinge and a Rockler toy box lid support is used to keep it from slamming shut. www.thecarmichaelworkshop.com -------------------------------------------------- Recommended Tools (affiliate links): http://amzn.to/2dy8cXn - SawStop Table Saw http://amzn.to/2dy82iN - Craftsman Sliding Miter Saw http://amzn.to/2dnLL3V - Dewalt Planer http://amzn.to/2czmO8S - Craftsman Router http://amzn.to/2dnMmmq - Dewalt Trim Router http://amzn.to/2d5eGMi - Dewalt Jigsaw http://amzn.to/2qMEEJf - Ridgid Spindle Sander http://amzn.to/2dvdsrX - Ridgid Random Orbital Sander http://amzn.to/2cYSxOS - Dewalt Palm Sander http://amzn.to/2d29D1Z - Jet 14" Bandsaw http://amzn.to/2dnIUYG - 14 Gallon Shop Vac http://amzn.to/2cYRKxt - Ridgid Drill and Driver Combo http://amzn.to/2dnLiPb - Dewalt Scroll Saw http://amzn.to/2cYRMWf - 1" Belt Sander http://amzn.to/2dnzGQP - 8" Drill Press http://amzn.to/2dy8Hkx - Lathe http://amzn.to/2dnLyxK - Lathe Tools http://amzn.to/2dvi41g - Kreg K4 Pocket Hole Jig http://amzn.to/2dvgvAF - Glubot Glue Bottle http://amzn.to/2dnKZ7b - Babe-Bot Glue Bottle http://amzn.to/2czmszj - Momentary Footswitch http://amzn.to/2dnAXHr - Freud 50 Tooth Thin Kerf Sawblade http://amzn.to/2czmXcG - Microjig Gripper http://amzn.to/2d5cQvh - Microjig Grip Blocks http://amzn.to/2d5cPXW - MJ Splitter Thin Kerf http://amzn.to/2dvgrAF - RZ Mask http://amzn.to/2dfpl4f - Bench Cookies ---------------------------------------------------------- Recommended Supplies (affiliate links): http://amzn.to/2di8UVz - Harbor Freight Flashlight http://amzn.to/2cVkn1Q - Clock Insert http://amzn.to/2d2ab7G - 3M General Purpose 45 Spray Adhesive http://amzn.to/2dvfZ5x - Stick Fast Medium CA Glue http://amzn.to/2d29MlU - Stick Fast Activator for CA Glue http://amzn.to/2dfnBbd - Titebond II http://amzn.to/2dnLvSn - Loctite Epoxy http://amzn.to/2dfrpZE - Transtint Dye http://amzn.to/2cYTwyG - Deft Spray Lacquer http://amzn.to/2dnD9Pv - Johnson Paste Wax http://amzn.to/2dfkbVT - 10-14 Gallon Shop Vac Bag 3pk -------------------------------------------------- Follow me on: Etsy - http://www.etsy.com/shop/carmichaelworkshop Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/TheCarmichaelWorkshop Google+ - https://plus.google.com/u/0/111000674985715386662 Instagram - http://instagram.com/carmichaelwkshp LumberJocks - http://lumberjocks.com/scarmike67 Pinterest - http://pinterest.com/carmichaelwkshp/pins/ Tumblr - http://thecarmichaelworkshop.tumblr.com/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/carmichaelwkshp Website - http://www.thecarmichaelworkshop.com WoodTube - http://woodtube.ning.com/profile/SteveCarmichael Music: "You've Got A Friend In Me" by Lyle Lovett/Randy Newman (EMI)

Hey Steve, Very nice. Were those your own plans that you used, or was there plans that you can print off the internet for this box?

Thanks! Check craigslist for deals on tools.

Kudos. That's a fine box, and a real labour of love. I feel like going out and getting a bench saw now to revive my dormant (and limited) woodworking skills!

Thanks Brian! His mom requested espresso color to match other furniture. I honestly had no idea what color espresso is, but then I found a can of stain that surprisingly was labeled espresso as the color. Got lucky I guess.

Thanks Laney. This was a weekend project that took me 3 months. I had at least 20 hours of video, so it's quite ironic that the video ended up being 2:45. LOL
