I’m now starting to work on some Christmas Gift’s, a long time ago Steve Ramsey (Wood working for mere mortals) posted a sliding lid box and I really liked it. I thought it would be cool if it was long enough for pencils, and I also thought it would make a good gift. I made mine out of a block of walnut that was 4’’ thick, I cut it up into several 1/2’’ pieces. Steve Ramsey used a sliding dovetail joint on his lid which is the best way to make the lid slide. But I don’t have a router table so I couldn’t figure out a way to cut the sliding dovetail. I just raised my TS blade up a 1/2’’ and cut out a dado into the box so the lid would slide. My box is 2 3/4’’ tall, by 7 3/4’’ long. It’s a great project that is really fun to make.
