Hand Carved Toy Box
This page will show the progress as I begin a hand carved toy box project for a client’s twins. The two designs will feature jungle scenes with one toy box having a lion and the other will have a giraffe (see finished “Josie” toy box here).

Feb 19, 2018: Below is a sketch I’ve made to get the project started.
Here are the boxes I’ll be working on. The toy boxes were built in Chester Nebraska by RJ Woods and are made of oak.
August 19, 2018: More carving and get rid of the bulk of the oak on the carved toy box. It’s inspiring to have seen the finished one and now I can’t wait to complete its twin! 🙂
August 20, 2018: Another solid night / morning of carving! 😀
August 22, 2018: A little further along, but now I need to think about saws for a while!
August 24, 2018: I have carved more along the top of the carved toy box and slowing getting the bulk of the work roughed in, with some detail along the way.
August 26, 2018: Last night I was able to get the right side roughed out – there’s light at the end of the tunnel! 😀
September 5, 2018: Almost done!!! I can’t wait to finish this one up and stain it… SO CLOSE!
September 18, 2018: Completed! I will be delivering these to the happy parents and kids this week! 😀
