I try to build something every year for my son's school teachers, something useful and from our (he helps me) own hands. I knew that storage is always at a premium for a preschool classroom so a toy chest seemed like a great idea. In order to make it friendly for little backsides to sit and to incorporate some of the history of my materials, I covered the top of the chest with leather salvaged from the insulated World War Two coveralls. Accented with the covers of discarded history books and lined with pages from an old western, the chest was a big hit and I know that years later it is still in place serving young minds just like it served young men 70 years before.
You can make this chest in an afternoon with tools on hand and materials available at the home center. Kids can handle most of the work that includes measuring, nailing, sanding, and painting, while adults should do the sawing and clamping. Once the toy chest is put together, kids will be scrambling to fill it with their prized possessions.
