I have another Granddaughter that asked if I would make her a pencil box. How can a Grandpa say no?

That is a sweet box!
I like it and the walnut looks great with the oak and birch.
I really like heirlooms and that one is gonna get passed down in the family for generations.
Great job.

Box joints for days. That box is like an empire that lasts a 1000 years, except empires dont often last that long.

Super awesome fantastic.

Looks sharp! I mean the box even though the pencils are probably sharp as well. :)

With all of this covid mess going on, I was finally able to give her the pencil box yesterday and she loved it. We spent an hour drawing together. I would like to thank all of you for your views and kind comments.

Nicely done! I just forwarded this to my son, who has a 300 pc pencil crayon set for his art work. He’s been looking for a storage solution and if you don’t mind, I’d like to build a similar design. This is fantastic. I really like the handles you mounded on the sides for carrying. Thanks. Scott
