This pencil box is a super simple project that is still fun to make. I wanted to build a back to school project, that would be great on my desk at home. I just made mine out of some 1/2 plywood scraps. The box is also painted a black, you can paint it any color, I just painted it black to match my laptop. These are great presents for the holidays also.

Thanks for reading,
AJ

Sweet, quick and practical. My Kinda project. Reminds me of this little box I made. I had it under my monitor, but when I got a bigger monitor, I set it on the side to hold other stuff.

AJ, You are so lucky to have a dad and grandpa to help you and support you in your woodworking adventure.
My dad wouldn’t let me touch any of his tools when I was your age. My dad might not have wanted me to get hurt or maybe he didn’t think I would be careful with them. So seeing you doing all these woodworking project at such a young age put’s a big smile on my face! So be very careful when using those tools. I’m very proud of you!

Thanks tony. My neighbors think I’m really strange, when they see me using a table saw. But when I show them what I make, they change their mind! They only tool I have trouble using is my circular saw, I cant guide it straight!

Clamping a straight edge to the work will help guide the saw. It’s important to cut a straight line with a circular saw. A circular saw can kick back if it binds up in the wood. Always have a good firm grip on the saw, and good standing balance just in case it kicks back on you.
Stay safe AJ

Good job : )
Maybe you can bring it outside into the sunlight tomorrow and get some better pictures to share with us. I’ve had good luck taking pictures of dark objects that way : )
