This pencil box was commissioned as a desktop unit to match the owners desk profile in order to store his ever growing pencil and pen collection. Solid oak with oak veneered drawer fronts and back, the top cover is pin hinged to the body and carefully fitted to the curved profile. Black ebony drawer pulls and small decorations. Fun, practical project full of challenges and good lessons.

I can imagine that was quite challenging to design and build, but you pulled it off extremely well. Great job!
