I wanted to make my two young nieces (under 5) a present for Christmas. Their mother suggested a blanket/toy box with the following specifications. Size 800mm wide, 400 deep, and 500 high. No sharp corners. A slow close mechanism for fingers. And it should be able to be used as a seat.
Inspired by Kerry Pierce's Pleasant Hill Shaker furniture, I've come up with what I think is a nice design.
More info to come.
