I made this pencil box for my Uncle. The box is Walnut and the lid is walnut and Purpleheart. It features mitered joints and the grain is matched all the way around the box except for 1 corner. The lid is one solid piece that I routed to give it a raised panel look. It took about a day to make and another day for the glue to dry. I finished it with Danish oil a week later and applied some wax when I was sure the pores of the walnut had stopped “bleeding” oil.
This is the third box I have ever made. It was built in 2002. Nothing special, just abox for pencils and pens…
