I made this toy chest for my neice a week ago. Just pocket joinery, some stain, and a little hand painting. She went nuts! LOL!

It is plain to see why she went nuts. Nice toy box: really like the paintings also.

Beautiful job. I’m about to do the same for my grandson. I’ve been looking at the Lowes plans and videos online.
I love my Kreg jig and have been waiting for the weather to break to do this. Your’s looks excellent.

if you don’t mind my asking, how did you get the images onto your project. This turned out fantastic. My kids would love something similiar, but I have no idea how you got the images on there. was that the hand painting part? If so, I’m out! haha
