    Hey there! Great video and thanks for the plans I bought them the other day and the toybox looks great. Unfortunately the hardest part is figuring out those door hinges that you recommend. I didn’t see it in the plans or the video and now that it’s assembled it asks that we weigh the door? Just wondering what settings you used in any tips on installing it?

    Hi, thank you for this excellent video and great link for details. I do have a question, what is the 2×2 @8ft board for? I’m putting this together and do not see where this is needed. Thank you again!

  4. Tyler Tews on October 2, 2022 at 1:04 am

    Fantastic! I am making this for my son. Thanks for posting! Beautiful job.

  5. Tevin Hamilton on October 2, 2022 at 1:05 am

    What’s the size of all the cuts?

  6. TheLordisMyShepherd IShallNotWant on October 2, 2022 at 1:06 am

    Beautiful job!

    Hi can you please give us some instruction regarding the installation of the slow closing hinge please? The direction make no sense to me Thanks

  8. Naomi Seitz on October 2, 2022 at 1:08 am

    Do you have a video on how to make those book holders that are on the wall

  9. Hank Smith on October 2, 2022 at 1:08 am

    Great information, thank you for sharing. Question, did you go with Oak or Pine? I am pricing out oak and is $150 just for wood from Lowes. Thank you.

    Is the construction of this strong enough to be used as a bench?

  11. Kerry Kelly on October 2, 2022 at 1:13 am

    Really lovely thank you. So needed as well with Christmas on the way and more toys incoming 💚

    Hi, I have a few questions..
    1. What’s the total storage area (cubic ft)?

    2. How much time would expect this take an armature to make (hrs)?

    3. Would I find all necessary tools and wood cuts on your blog?

    4 where can I find your blog?

  13. Michael Laro on October 2, 2022 at 1:18 am

    Great video! Just subscribed and I think I’m going to go e this build a stab. I see the great cut list you gave on your blog, however what cuts did you have the home store make on the 4×8 plywood? Did you have them make a couple, then you did the rest at your shop? I will need to have them cut it down to make it more manageable, but I’m sure they won’t be interested in making all of the cuts. Thanks again!

    Super nice!
    Great job! 😉 😀

  15. Inspiring Builds on October 2, 2022 at 1:21 am

    The slow closing hinge is a great idea especially for younger kids. Great job!

  16. Dablkwid0w2008 on October 2, 2022 at 1:22 am

    Oh so THIS box is DIY DIY🤣
    I was just looking for staining and decorating

  17. Claude Dubuc on October 2, 2022 at 1:27 am

    Great looking box….We would like to make it somewhat bigger by 3 inches all-round. Would it be feasible to increase the all of the dimensions of the lumber cuts by 3"? Would this work? Thanks much Angela.

    Great Job

  19. Chris Christen on October 2, 2022 at 1:32 am

    Looks great, thank you for making the video. My wife has a question about the barn doors behind you. Would you mind telling me what type of material they are made out of? Thank you!

  20. Evan Burley on October 2, 2022 at 1:33 am

    Great video! I’m having a hard time finding 3×3 at my local hardware store. It doesn’t seem to be very common in Canada.

  21. Howard's Channel on October 2, 2022 at 1:36 am

    so if I didn’t know any better it sure looks to me like the corner posts 3.5" square and not 2.5" as your plan calls for. Look at the 1:42 mark. If that is the case, then the stringers would have to be 1" shorter. Can you confirm?

  22. Philip Pasco on October 2, 2022 at 1:39 am

    Absolutely love this idea. I’m planning on taking the same approach as you with having initial cuts done at the store. How did you have the plywood cut at the store? (Dimensions wise that is.) Thanks for the help!!

  23. Hank Smith on October 2, 2022 at 1:41 am

    Just finished, thank you again for the wonderful instructions along with the video, must have watched it 50 times 🙂

  24. Maddy Salazar on October 2, 2022 at 1:43 am

    What paint did you use? Where can I get it from?

  25. travis mcpherson on October 2, 2022 at 1:43 am

    Great video, I went to lowes for the 3×3 and they are now $45 a piece, sad panda 🐼

  26. Kelan Griffin on October 2, 2022 at 1:50 am

    Very nice project. Thanks for the video.
