I made this box for my girlfriend, who teaches ballet. Dancers put a box on the floor and apply rosin to their shoes in order to get the right traction. This could be a simple wooden box or even a plastic tupperware container. I decided to spruce it up a little bit, and make a compartment at one end of the box. The compartment is made with magnets epoxied into the bubinga and bloodwood, so that it can stay closed and hold the rosin. The compartment was actually a last-minute idea, and so it is held in place by using 3/16” brass rod through the sides and into the board.
