I'm working on a design for a toychest for a young mother with a newborn. I want to make it able to be knocked down so she can move it. I'm pretty sure she is not "mechanical" and probably doesn't own any tools at all.
Box will be plywood, painted, and my wife and daughter will decorate that very nicely I'm sure. As part of that I could have them decorate to indicate which side is which and which is the front and so on.
I'm thinking sliding dovetails to hold the main part of the box and then have the top and bottom install after that. Bottom could set on cleats (cleats permanently fastened to box sides). Top could be a cleat with piano hinge permanently fastened to the box top and then come up with a way to hold the cleat to the box.
Obviously I'm floundering around here. Ideas? suggestions? It would sure be appreciated. Thank you.
