tool holder, carving a knife box,,,

well folks i am about the wrap up the pine cone ornament, which i enjoyed making ,,, they are simple but alot of work, but a nice project to give away to friends and family for the holidays, i know its summer yet but soon it will be fall, you can never carve christmas stuff to early, sometimes i start in jan for the next year. i have an idea, i hold my tools in a box that was a cigar box from my grandfather in holland, i have it tape together but i used it for years,
and thought it might be fun to do a project that we do some relief carving on a wooden box, i got my wooden box at a major craft store, they were on sale for 3.00 and 5.00 a box, you want to make sure you get one that is not a thin layers on the top of the box then you will not be able to do the relief carving on the top. so see the pictures to see what kind you will need to get its about 1/4 inches thick of a soild wood, that is what you will need. i put dividers in the box to seperate my knives so that they dont hit each other, which is not good,,, you can chip or dull them quickly this way. this will be a good way to keep your knives safe in this storage box. i sometimes use the box to hold my chips as i carve,,, we will start this project soon,,,
