Sorry for not posting the last couple days. I've been busy doing my uncle duties. Anytime one of the children in our family turn one I build them a toy box. Beth and Bryan's second child, Brylee has her first birthday party tomorrow.
I wanted to do a photo build like I did with the last toy box but I waited until the last minute to start this build. I built this box the last three nights after work. It's 4am Saturday morning and I just put the last touches on. I used the color scheme from her bedroom. The ornamentation is pretty basic but I think it's enough. Especially since it's 4am. Did I tell you I'm tired.
One note about working tired. I used a piano hinge for the lid. It needed to be cut to length so I took it to my chop saw. I had my glasses on but didn't think about protecting the rest of my face. When the blade hit the metal hinge small bits of metal went flying. They hit my forehead and cheeks. No damage but it scared the you know what out of me. I was just tired and in a hurry. That's a very bad combination when working in the shop.
I know I promised to put up a pattern for the last toy box I built but it never got done. When I build this type of project I don't work from plans. I design on the fly. That makes it tough to go back and draw up the design. Sorry but I probably won't do it this time either.
Here are some pictures I thought I would share. I'll get back to my regular scroll saw posts this weekend.
