Trying to get ready for Christmas! ~ Hoping somebody besides us woodworkers still use pencils.
These were made from a plan I found, (woodworkers journal) clever little boxes.
Made from some scrap Black walnut, and small piece of Ebony to create a pull for the cover.
I added the pull and a couple small magnets to keep the cover closed to the plan.

It was just about as easy to make (six) as to make (one.)

Finish is just some Danish Wood Oil, will probably rub some beeswax into them.

Here is a link to the plan if anyone is interested Artist-Pencil-Box

Thanks for having a look!

These are unique looking pencil boxes. I like the sliding top with a twist. Nice work.

Very cool design and storage/opening solutions. It brings memories to my wooden pencil holder when I was in elementary school.

I remember pencil boxes, I used to have them way back when but they never looked this good!
Very nice project and well done.

Clever design. Just might have to make a few for hardware storage. Thanks for sharing!
