Box for a 5 year old girl.

For the two triplet girls I also made some stationary boxes. Main box contains sticky notes and envelopes.
The tray contains pens, colored pencils and erasures. The tray sticks up so that it holds the lid in place. At the birthday party, I received orders for 6 more boxes. Apparently the idea was a hit.
Box is made from pallet wood that I resawed and glued up, keeping an eye on the grain.
Finish is BLO and tung oil.

Nice job, especially the grain matching. Reusing wood from a pallet and turning out such a nice project is just awesome.
