This toy box I made for my nephew’s 2nd birthday. The idea was to make it board/table game themed. So, there are : chess, don’t get angry man, cards, domino and tic-tac-toe game. It’s made of firwood/pine 18mm (top 14mm) and bottom is chipboard 16mm thick. Decorations are 4mm beech plawood – coloured with regular wood colours and cut on 6mm bandsaw blade – fastened with glue and nail gun. All is finished with two layers of non-glossy laquer. Bellow top, I put two pneumatic lifters and regular hinges to keep top board. Also, cut holes for handles and on top front to prevent fingers injury. Bellow I put four rotating wheels – bottom was placed in that way that chest is just 3mm above the floor, so you can’t notice that there are wheels, but you can move chest full of toys easily. Dimensions 47×85x47 cm.

It’s beautiful, if I was a kid I’d be really happy with this.

Super cool chest! Gotta have that recessed front to prevent injuries to little fingers, and I love the wheels are just barely noticeable, nice work Ivan!
