I made these identical boxes for 3 former students who are now in 4th grade. They are best friends and some of the best students I have known. They come to visit occasionally from down the hall. They have admired my boxes from time to time. I will retire before they graduate from 8th grade, so I made these boxes for them. The mother of one of them is currently an Aide in my classroom. It’s a small town! I used Walnut from Rustfever in Modesto and some Cottonwood Burl that RockB sliced for me on his bandsaw mill. The tray and dividers are Curly Ambrosia Maple and Walnut, except one tray bottom is Camphor from Chico, CA. It was a handy size!! I super glued a small block of Cottonwood burl to the back as a stop for the lid. Watco Danish Oil for a finish. They are about 10” x 8” x 6”. The girls should enjoy these for a long time. They will get them on the last day of school.
-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
