My son who just turned 10 years old ahd been bugging me about when he could get his first knife. I broke down and said it’s time, so I bought him a small three blade knife for whittling and whatever a young boy does with a knife. I felt the need for a safe place to keep his knife so in my “spare” time I built this little hinged box from scraps I had lying around. It’s pine with brass hinges. I stained the roundout a darker color for effect and put in a rare earth magnet catch. He seemed to like it but how’s a dad to tell? This is one of many boxes I’ve built for the kids but it’s one of the nicer ones I must say. I can only hope that when he’s 50 years old he’ll still have it to give to his son but then again who knows if it’ll last a few years in his hands. Boys will be boys you know.
I hope you enjoyed and thanks for peeking at my wood:-)
