A traditional pencil case made for ‘Alex’ (who would have guessed). Hand cut finger joints at the corners. Made from New Guinea Rosewood (box) and Silky Oak (lid). Alex is my nephew who started school in Australia this year after moving from Georgia USA.

2 & 3 are for his brother and my son.

Beautiful pencil box, like the pretty wood combo. It’s way better than the store bought ones.
