This was my first major woodworking undertaking. I began the project in May and am only able to work on it during my off time from school and work. So maybe 8-10 hours per week at most. I have never built anything of any consequence before and decided that I wanted to take up and make a hobby of woodworking. Hence this is my first of I hope many woodworking projects to come. Incidently, the toy chest pictured is for my first grandbaby.
