Built a toy box for my niece’s baby girl. She wanted something white. I made it out of quarter sawn white oak, and waxed with Briwax liming wax and natural. Plan is this Rockler plan But I used loose tenons and dowels for the breadboard top, and I used solid posts for the corners.

Really nice job on that toy chest and great choice in wood. That will last a lifetime and then some.

Nice job, the 4 hinges you have on there do they hold the lid vertical only or will it support it at different angles?

Thanks guys – Vince – the 4 hinges are Rockler lid supports, not really hinges. But they do hold the lid open at 85 degrees and hold it open if you let go while closing it. They have springs in them that make them work. I needed 4 of them because the top weighs 38 pounds. Photo doesn’t show it very well, but I used a piano hinge for hinges, It’s black so it blends in with the background.
