I made two of these. One for each granddaughter at the time. (Since then I have another granddaughter and a grandson.) Made with solid oak everywhere except the top. I made the top with oak plywood for strength. I edged the lid with oak. These were the first projects I ever made where things had to fit tightly together and the beginning of my woodworking hobby.

Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Finish Used
Each family wanted a different finish, one a more natural oak and the other a weathered gray stain. I used Verathane stain and satin finish polyurethane on both.
