« Part 2: Small Oak Tool Tray Part 3 of Small Projects series Part 4: Short Dog Gate »

As I diabetic I need vials of insulin, needles and alcohol pads to be handy at all times especially when traveling. This little cherry tote box is 3” x 3” x 7” out of resawn 1/4” stock. It holds two vials of insulin, eight syringes and a good supply of alcohol pads.

I actually made this in 2016 and its held up well. My laser engraver was working then and I engraved the lid to suggest the contents.

The sliding lid has what I like to call a ‘perfect’ fit. That is, if the lid is closed by gravity, the lid self locks and will not open when inverted.

It is finished with two coats of 50%-50% semigloss poly.

Good to hear your on top of it… and that is a neat little box.

A lasered lid always makes the box stand out. Should try to bring the laser back to life.

I only have type 2, so no need for insulin… however those alcohol thingies sound good.
