Was looking for learning/teaching toys to add to our shop, but couldn’t find a shape box I liked. So I grabbed a pencil and started sketching.
The box is 5.5” square to take advantage of inexpensive 5.5” wide by 1/2” thick poplar available at our local Lowes. Shapes are all around 2” across, except for the rectangle that is 1” x 3”. 2” ball added to the top for a handle. The top only goes on one way makiing it the 10th shape.
The prototype showed me a couple of the sides need to have the openings rearranged to avoid a thin section near the top.
Thanks for looking.
