I made this little box out of butternut. My first experience w/ butternut, easy to work with for the most part. It tends to fuzz a little on the router but planes like a dream. Thanks for looking.

Cool! I need a place to hide pencils near my computer and these would work well.

A box for an almost extinct implement. Nice design.

I really like this. Nice work. Will probably steal the idea.

I think that’s an interesting idea, having two boxes that join together. Cool!

I am never without a couple of #2 pencils. I keep them in one of the pockets in my bib overalls and I plan on making a couple of pencil boxes for my workshop. Yours are very nicely done. Welcome to Lumberjocks.
