This toy chest was made for my grandson. The credit for the design goes to Don from Ottawa. I added a set of shelves in the lid to hold small toys or books. Thanks for the idea Don.

Nice job. I particularly like the efforts to make it safer. What device is that controlling the lid opening/closing?

Thanks, the “spring lid supports” are made by National hardware. Model #N208. They make a left, center or right. They will support this lid until it is lowered about 1/2 way down. I think I will add a 3rd just for added safety. I searched for domestic made supports but could only find these made in Taiwan. (Menards).
Anyone know a good Made in USA hardware company? I’m looking.

That’s beautiful. I’m sure Cayden will have it for his own children!

How did you join the corners, in other words the sides to the front?
