Here’s another box—sort of a candle box, I suppose, but it’s sized for regular wooden pencils, too. I resawed the cherry on my table saw and cleaned it up with my thickness planer. Based on a design I saw somewhere—probably one of Doug Stowe’s books. Finish is boiled linseed oil and wipe-on poly.

I love these simple boxes because they remind me so much of a bygone era that was before my time. I’ve seen some of the candle boxes in the antique stores that I have visited over the years. There’s no telling how many of them are left over from the old days and are the safe place for many a person’s favorite treasures. it’s a real nice box. Congratulations.

Such a simple little box, but so well made. I like the curve on the lid.
