Once you make a toolbox that fits all your tools perfectly, you can't get any new tools.

That's what the drawers in the bench are for, you don't actually use the tools in the box.

Know anything about kiln-dried wood? I've got wood, and a kiln somebody gave us.

I assume the kiln is small, I mean like not big enough for 8' ft planks. Probably the sizes that would fit your kiln would fit in an oven.
Kiln drying requires a low heat and moving air to carry the moisture away. It's much faster than air drying and the time varies with the species. The finish moisture content also depends on what the wood is going to be used for.

If you've got the time you could hammer out some really cool hardware for your kids toy chest. But if you have a kid with a toy chest you probably don't have the time.
