Default Dog toy box

My daughter Islay has a jack russel mutt named Hailey that keeps eating her toy box. Islay gave her a plastic toy box and she ate it. Then it was a wooden toy box and she ate it.

Islay asked me to make Hailey a metal toy box that she couldn't eat so here is what I came up with. It's 3/4" aluminum square tube, 1/4" round stock, an expanded metal bottom, and some very thin (.030") perforated sheet that I cut into 1" ribbons and wove into the round stock to make it look like a basket.

If Hailey eats this toy box, Islay needs to find a new dog.

Nice job! My dog doesn't eat her toy box but she has yet to learn how to put her toys away.

Ours also needs to learn to put his away.
We can do it when cleaning up, but his favorites are quickly pulled out and artfully arranged wherever he happens to drop them.

Now may a toy that a dog wants to play with but can't destroy and you'll make millions!
