Katie, making multiple tops would be a great idea to adapt to different needs. The top is just screwed down to a inner plywood frame which you don't see by looking at these Picts. Just unscrew the...

nice toy box... I have looked at those torsion hinges in Rockler but the cost of them seems a bit high and I have found the cheaper spring loaded lid hinges in HD work pretty good for a light lid.....

Tom,

I see what you did now.. so this allows the Festool track to sit directly on top of your material so you benefit from the anti-chip edge. I guess when you drop the bridge that the EZ track...

is your PB made of the 8020 material you told me about? Like how you set the kerf down the channel of your frame... good idea.

Another benefit of pocket screws over other joinery

Would be that it does the clamping for you instead of the need to set up clamps and wait for glue to dry. This saves time and if you're charging for your time, that means mo' money, mo' money :D
