A Shout out to WOODCRAFT magazine (for shouting out the kids' furniture book)

Check out the Feb/March 2019 issue of Woodcraft magazine. Great link on their website to free plans for building the Cheery Cherry toy chest from "Building Unique and Unusual Kids' Furniture" book.  More great articles on "Router Table Trickery," "A Hacker's Guide to Hand Planes" and more
