Project Information

I was approached by a coworker with a request for a toy box for her daughter. I was given compete design freedom. She has yet to receive it… I'm confident it isn't what she had in mind but it's a toy box nonetheless.

The shape of the box was cut out of Baltic Birch. The front and the back was attached on the sides using strips of 3/4 thick plywood cut roughly 1" wide. The ends were then covered with bendy ply. I attempted to use thin Masonite but it wouldn't make the bends. The inside curves are skinned with a thin ply that I had in the shop. Given the amount of skeleton, laminateing and glue the box really seem to be bulletproof.

That is thinking "outside the box". Looks great. Anyone should be proud to own that. Good job !

I think you have very bad drift on the bandsaw.
And a nice set of clamps!
Did you use bendy plywood on the ends?

Impressive project I only hope it is appreciated

As they used to say in the sixties- how not to be a square. Graceful and well done.

You are right, this piece would look terrific in my son's room. I think you did a great job on this toy box, very creative.
