TheToy Train box

Submitted to Community Café

This project was building a train box to hold my great grandson's train set.  It is made out of black walnut from trees grown in Wisconsin.  I wrote a computer program to be able to make these kinds of boxes to insure I would not make any mistakes in dimensions or any other surprises that could come up after all the wood was cut to size.  The only measurements that needed to be input were length, width, depth, thickness of inside padding and thickness of cloth inside covering.  I also added one inch to the length because I used half inch lumber with dove tail construction to make the box.  It was a fun task to complete and a neat way for him to remember his great grandfather.
