A nice way for a boy to organize his toys and give him something that will hold lots of boyhood treasures and memories.

Size is 27×19x17 LWH, finish is a coat of varnish.

All wood is Thai Padu, frame is assembled with DowelMax and the panel boards are a loose fit dado joint.

Thx for viewing

Lovely work as usual.
Where do you get your Pradu from? I have been looking around for some but always just hear ‘mai mee’.
