In August starts our eldest daughter in secondary school. I have made a new pencil-box for her.
Its made of olive and oak. I use Danish oil and beeswax for finish
Hope she will use it.

I really like well made, straightforward boxes. This one qualifies easily.

Now thats what I call a pencil box. Nice tight finger joints and the top doesn’t slide right through. Splendid.

Very nice design, well made – and beautiful choice of timber for the lid.
