« Part 4: It's Resaw Recycling Time Part 5 of bandsaw series Part 6: Timberwolf 3tpi beast »

I used that lovely cedar resawn from the rotting fences for two sliding lid pencil boxes for my kids.
Red oak ply for lids and bases.
Danish oil finish on the boxes and my daughter stained her pencils to match.

From this

To these

We did a little road trip into Seattle over the weekend and stayed in the University district. Right beside the hotel was Hardwick’s Hardware store. The place was sweet with tons of tools an such jammed into narrow aisles. I could have spent a whole day there, but was dragged onto other, more boring, female shopping pursuits. Next time the rose wood awl and German burnisher are mine!
Cool place, check it out if you get the chance!

Your daughter must be very proud of what her Daddy made for her. The taxes do look very nice.
