Started the build on my haunted toy box for the "Creepy Girl's Room" in my haunt. I used fence posts from Home Depot:

and cut them down to size:

Here is the frame almost finished:

and then frame all done:

Next was the bottom. I had to use left over OSB because I didn't get enough fencing:

Construction finished with the lid closed:

and open:

Tomorrow the motor the dolls inside. Thanks for taking a look!

That looks awesome so far - nice craftsmanship. If you run out of stuff to do I could really use a haunted front deck. ;)

Looking forward to seeing the guts of the thing!

So I didn't get as much progress on the toy box as I wanted, but here is what I did get accomplished. I got the motor mounted on the stand:

Gotta love duct tape!

Mounted inside the box:

So after getting everything mounted in place, I found out the lid was too heavy for the motor. So I look off two of the panels and it seemed to work OK after that. I'll add a piece of foam to fill the hole, paint it and add some creepy cloth. That should work.

So more tomorrow, hopefully. Including video of it in action.
