My grandson is very fond of drawing and coloring his drawings, so I thought I’d make a pencil case with pencils for his 6’th birthday.
It is made of Elm and assembled with glue and dowels.

Praise and criticism are welcome.

Ole, this is a nice job. The finger pull is especially nice. I like this traditional style of pencil case. There are some tricky steps in making these. It looks like yours will hold quite a few pencils. I am sure your grandson will enjoy using the box and the pencils. May I suggest that telling readers the dimensions of your work helps us get a better idea of scale. This is a link to a posting where I made a similar box if you would like to share ideas. Keep boxing and keep posting. Projects for grandsons are the best.

Thanks for your comments.

Boxguy – You make really awesome boxes.

The dimensions is:
l = 265 mm – 10½”
w = 65 mm – 2½”
h = 55 mm – 2”

The goal was that it should hold at least 24 color pencils.
