Hand Carved Wooden Toy Box Project
This page will show the progress as I begin a wooden toy box project for a client’s twins. The designs will feature jungle scenes with one toy box having a lion and the other will have a giraffe. (View the completed “Leo” toy box here)

Feb 19, 2018: Below are the two sketches 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.
April 3, 2018: More progress to report on the wooden toy box! I’ve worked my way from the right to the left and a lot wood removed (one little chip at a time). It’s all starting to come together now and I’m excited to see more! Thankfully, winter is staying in Nebraska for what seems like forever, so I’m enjoying my warm indoor studio time!
August 13, 2018: I’m getting SOOOOooo close to completing this one! Just some more detail to finish and then I can begin the 2nd carving.
August 15, 2018: I’ve added color stain to finish the front, then it’s back to the shop for assembly and a final stain!
August 17, 2018 – I received it back from the shop who built the box and it’s COMPLETE! 😀
