A former student of mine asked me to make him a toy chest for his new baby and new house. The only things he asked were that it be made out of reclaimed wood and have a grayish tint.
I used reclaimed wood with Weather Wash pined stain and their varnish (basically a water based poly) over the boards to get a uniform color. I used a gas safety hinge to keep the lid from slamming on fingers.
The last picture is what the chest looked like before I put the weather wash stain on the chest

An A+++ JOB!

I like that you use rescued wood.

A very simple-yet sturdy enough for decades of use build.

Even rescued habdles!
