So…. after making the pencil box for our oldest boy, his brother drew up this and requested that I make it for him. I thought that was just so cute, and so off to the shop I went :) I tried to stay to the look of what he drew. And although it’s not woodworking genius, he loves it! Sometimes it’s just the act of making something that’s all the difference.
