Simple open toy box with moulding detail.
You did such a great job...it looks like it's straight out of the PB catalogue!
♥I love this, I hope to get this good soon!!!! I have the cricut machine...is that how you did the lettering?♥
I simply printed the font on white paper off my computer, taped it onto the toybox, traced with a ball point pen (which leaves a slight indent into the wood) then filled in, very, very carefully, with pink paint using a tiny and medium brush. I have yet to purchase a cricut, too busy sawing wood! Good luck.
just gets more impressive, what a steady hand you have there! wow!
Will post my kiddos soon, thanks for sharing, I love your work
Dumb question: how do you give the shape on the feet of this toy box?
Also, did you use plywood or 1x16?
Fethiye the box and feet are made from 3/4" cabinet grade plywood. The top edge is 1x2 and there is cove moulding are both the top and bottom trim.
You can see the build post here:
The feet are jigsawed from 3/4" plywood (only because I totally forgot to buy the base moulding at the time).
Where did you find the lettering to print? All of my font programs only go up to 76pt or 288pt but are to small. Any advice?
Father of Five I used Microsoft Word straight from my computer, no font program needed. The size will vary on the name length but anywhere between 250 and 350 usually looks good on this size toy box. And it's Engravers font.
