I built this cool little pencil box this week. The plan is from Woodworkers Journal (December). I saw one of these a few years ago and always wanted to build one. It was finished with a few coats of Watco. I resawed some Beech for the box, as I had it in the rack. I had never used Beech before, but had purchased it from Woodcraft a few months ago. The plan is pretty good and the parts all came out accurately. One of the last things to do is cut the angle in the top. The Woodslicers narrow kerf kept the end sanding minimal, as the top part of the box is now a little shorter than the bottom.
This was a pretty easy build and should make a nice gift for one of the grandkids.
