Cherry Toybox

By Jim

Hooray!!! This weekend I finally finished a toybox for my niece that I started almost two years ago. It was just one of those projects that never seemed to get done.

The top, front, sides and decorative portion of the back are solid cherry. The lower portion of the back is cherry veneered plywood. The bottom is oak veneered plywood. The front is joined to the sides with hand-cut dovetails. The back is rabbetted into the sides. The decorative piece at the top of the back is joined to the rail below it with dowels and mortised into the sides. The top is attached with a piano hinge and has a soft-close mechanism so Isabella won’t hurt her little hands.
