This isn’t fine woodworking but it works. I did learn a lot on this one.
I bought ½ birch ply from my normal supplier. It was a mistake. It looked good on the outside but I did fine a lot of voids. After a few days in my dry conditioned basement shop some of the plywood warped. I could have made a barrel out of the ¼ inch ply. I worked around the warped ply as best I could. The other problem I soon realized was getting hardware (drawer slide screws, hinges and hinge screws) that would work without poking out. I found screws but I worry they might not hold in the long run.
All in all it worked. The girls think it’s pretty cool and it holds a lot of toys.
I may build another one out of 3/4 .

Looks good to me, No bad Critique from me, other then i’m not real big on the color.

But that’s personal Preference!

Keep up the good work, forward to seeing more!

Thanks Handi

The colors are all princess colors.

My girls are 1 and 3 so they are into anything princess.

Looks pretty good and is seems to serve the purpose quite well. Could you show a pic of it opened up? was wondering if you did shelving inside or just bulk storage.

There are no shelves inside. The middle section has the two doors that open out to the sides. The bottom is two drawers. I have a sketchup on my other computer if you want it.

Have your say...
