I didn’t like my squares being banged around on the workbench and also i kept losing pencils in the shavings so i built a caddy to keep them safe and also to keep all the marking tools handy. The ends, dividers and base are mahogany and the sides are cypre. The slots were outlined on the bandsaw and hollowed out with a Stanley No.71 Router Plane and the dovetails done by hand (my 1st attempt at dovetails). There’s also a row of 1/8” dowels wedged as a movable divider to keep the pencils upright (only shown in last picture). Finish is Cabot Spar Varnish.
