Had to go to a Christmas party last night at the Church. I bought a little “Fruit Knife” from Lee Valley. Thought I needed something to put it in, so I made this little weird box thing. Babinga…wax finish. Box was easy. Top was a booger. Oh well, it’s gone now.

well done

the knife is interesting
it’s good it’s for fruit

cutting and eating a steak
would be hard with it
unless it comes apart

Thanks. If I ever do one of these again, I’ll take more time to think it thru. Especially the lid
