I built this toybox from plans in a recent copy of Wood magazine for my granddaughter. I used 1/2” baltic birch plywood for the box. The plans called for 3/4” I thought that might be a little overkill so went with the 1/2”. The drawer fronts were supposed to be 1/4” walnut. I ran out of walnut but had a piece of curly maple so the middle drawer got that. Finished with white and gray paint. I am still trying to convince my DIL that wood looks better natural. The box is a hit with the customer. She really likes the drawers. They are not childproofed.

Looks really nice. My daughter played in the toy box my dad made for her and now her daughter plays in it! :-)
