Any body have any good plans or pics of a kids toy box? I need a new project so I can justify to my wife that I need more tools.

My kids just used the floor.  It made it easier to find what they wanted.  Sure hated stepping  on those little lego pieces in my bare feet though.

sorry, ex got all the pics before i could grab some. Angry Angry Angry

as i recall, i used butt joints with the corners reinforced with 2x2's.  at that time, i had only a skill saw and a hand drill and borrowed a jig saw.  used 3/4" plywood, no top, and the back was higher then the sides and front with some scroll work on the top.  painted pink.

What kind of hindges and shocks would be used the for the cover so it doesn't slam down on little fingers?

(Old Fart Commentarty)
Back in my day the covers were very heavy and no safty devices. You learned real quick where not to put you fingers. Once you got the lid smacked on your head you also knew that maybe you should hold the cover when you put your head inside.
