Toy Chests for Christmas

For a while I didn't think the toy chests would be made in time, but after two busy days in the shop, it looks like the kids will have toy chest come Christmas. The dovetails dry fitted together and look good. I was very pleased that the first few slide together without fine tuning, but was disappointed by some that needed a bit more work. The apprentice didn't seem to notice though.


A sketch of things to come....
There's still a lot of work to go. I need to prepare the base moulding (crosscut, rip, dress, join, shape, round over), the top (tongue and groove breadboards), the base board (crosscut, rip, join), the inside tray(s), then there's the sanding... endless sanding... and finishing...
