Full Answer

To make the wooden toy box, cut six plywood pieces to the following measurements: bottom piece 36 inches in length and 16 1/2 inches in width, front and back pieces 36 inches in length and 24 inches in height, top piece 36 inches in length and 18 inches in width and two side pieces 22 1/2 inches in height and 16 1/2 inches in width.

To the bottom piece, affix the front and back pieces using six screws. Attach the side pieces using four screws: two to attach the front and back pieces and two to join the bottom piece. Affix three hinges on the top edge of the back piece: one in the center of the box and the other two 3 inches from the ends. Finally, attach the top piece to the hinges to make the lid.

Fill the holes of the screws with wood putty, allow it to dry, and then sand the box using sandpaper. To decorate the box, apply primer, allow it to dry, and spray paint it. Use two coats of paint. If desired, paint the child's name and other motifs on the box.
