This was my first attempt at a children’s toy box. It is made out of red oak plywood with an antique walnut stain. Bottoms and top are made out red oak.

Your 1st toy box looks a lot better then the one I made 25 years ago. But I’m curious… how does it open. Where is the hinge. The top piece that frames the seat looks like it would hit the back piece when you open it.

Thank you. It has a piano hinge on the back. However the one drawback is that it can not be set too close to the wall or that back piece prevents it from opening all the way.

Looks great

does it have a soft closure?
