Here’s a “pencil” box I’m building for my fiance’s sister for Christmas. Why? I’m cheap, that’s why.
Now before I get the “think you used enough dynamite there Butch?” reaction to it’s size: she’s an artist and therefore has a lot of stuff she can keep in it.
It’s made all from poplar, the dowels are some species of whitewood that Home Depot didn’t see fit to specify.
All butt-joints with thru-dowels, this project was more to practice doweling on and I think it adds a nice touch. That’s me though.
The stencil patterns I got from Jo-Ann’s and i think they came out alright. I have an alternating pattern for the top and bottom of the lid because I couldn’t decide on which one i liked better. Interior is plain, finished but unadorned. Whole box was finished with tung oil and a polyurethane since that’s what I had laying around.
Again please let me know what you think, any and all comments are appreciated. If you see an area for improvement please tell me, I’m here to learn.
Box measures about 6”x6”x14”
Please let me know what you think and where I stand to improve.
Thanks for playin along,
-- Half-assed and whole-hearted, Kenny
