Toy box with upholstered seat

Submitted by Jarvo388 on Mon, 11/17/2014 - 13:16

This was my first project using designs from Ana White, and I am really pleased with how it's turned out. My son loves it! There were a few small errors but it was always going to be a learning curve and the good thing with wood is you can hide most errors. Using the pocket hole system was new to me, as it's not that big over here in the U.K but its a great system if joining wood. Also over here we tend to use different measurements and we pay a lot more for wood. I am looking forward to building more projects if the wife lets me ;)

I am also a first timer and am just about to finish up the final coat of finish. I was wondering what you did to make the cushion on top? my girlfriend really wants to make a cushion for it but does no know where to start. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated! Your box looks amazing by the way. i like the lettters on the front.
