Couple of universal purpose, chestnut, narrow boxes with 3.5mm sliding top lid. 8mm thick sides glued and stapled. I cut 4mm wide sliding groove on routertable. I drilled 15mm fingerhole on drillpress. Dimensions 65×55x320 mm and 65×55x250 mm.
Finish wood oil.

Quick handy boxes to have around. Yes they are narrow sides.

... I drilled 15mm fingerhole on drillpress….

maj, If you put a finger in each box, how will you pull the fingers out through that little 15mm hole with your other 8 fingers… unless they are designed to be finger coffins with a porthole, for casting into the ocean.
Maybe you should have made the holes 19/32”.

I’ve made a few of those as gifts. They are great and I should probably have a couple of the shop.

Some people call these “pencil” boxes. Handy for lots of things. Nice work.

For the “next round”, instead of the finger hole you could glue a strip of wood across the top end of the lid that matches the top edges of the box sides.

Nice work Ivan, they remind me of my dads lap top work table (he built model trains) he had bunch of small files in a box very similar to the ones you made.

Unfortunately, for kids now days you need to invent a small skinny computer… or maybe iPhone boxes…
