Teacher Thank-You Box

End of term gift for the teachers at school: we asked the kids in the class to draw a self-portrait and write a short letter to their teachers. I built a box to contain all the letters of appreciation (so cute), and included their portraits on the design.

I took the ‘bunk bed’ lid idea from my previous build and batched out a few of these for the class teachers and head teacher.

Proofgrade basswood and cherry plywood.

This is SO cute, yet so elegant at the same time. I love the design…and the kids’ self-portraits. You can sure get some idea of what those kids think of themselves. :grinning:

Wow, what a memorable gift! It’s cool to see the range of artistic talent on display. Feeling a little sorry for Griffin—bad day?

Yeah…I saw that, too. Sort of sad that he was immortalized with that frown. That’s why I mentioned wondering what the kids thought of themselves.
