Gracie's Toy Box

I made Grace a toy box for Christmas. It is painted to match the color scheme in her room at Megan's house. I had some help from Benjamin. Ben made the signature block on the bottom of the box... with his own tools.  The box is simple plywood construction with a piano hinge. The biggest problem making the box was my unheated workspace. When I glued things together I had to bring the box into the house so the glue would set. I painted it in the house as well.

Gracie's box looks so great in her room. We are so lucky to have such a craftsman for a Papa and such a helpful little man (a.k.a., Ben) to pitch in and want to help create such a great gift that will be with us always!!!
