I made this toy box to show that a toy box can also be used as a toy. This one is the first of many I hope showing the toys that I had growing up as toy boxes.

Also Welcome William

You have done well on the Tonka truck toy box, a skilled wood worker for sure.

Done forget to add some information on the construction, materials used ( how you did the sign for instance) and all the interesting stuff people will want to be asking about.

Now I wonder if you could find somebody to take the photos for you because that will really do justice to your projects.

because I for one will be looking forward of more of your great projects.

Keep up the good work !!

-- Regards Rob

That looks amazing! I think your boy looks quite thrilled, eh?

How on earth did you get it to stick to your ceiling though? Will the lid stay shut in that position? Just kidding, looks awesome
