I want to share with the Glowforge Community a little crayon box that holds 24 crayons. After many failures and a lot of glue, I think it has turned out well. It was made with 1/8 inch Baltic plywood. This is my first time posting and I hope that I’m doing it right.

What a nice little box! I suppose you could also leave out the piece with the holes and use it for recipes or index cards. Thanks for the design!
I’m just starting out with GF. Did you design the box yourself, or use one of the online box creation sites? I’m particularly interested in the hinge and creating a dado for the shelf with holes.
Hi, I started with an online box creation and then used CorelDraw to “tweak” everything. There are 2 shelves with holes to keep the crayons standing upright. I found that 1 shelf let the crayons fall over and would get caught in the lid. There are small pieces of wood that I glued inside to keep the shelves in place. I’m new also but I love GF.
Nice design and thanks for sharing!
What a nice box for crayons or any number of things. Thanks so much.
You are absolutely doing it right! What a great box!
turned out really nice thx for the design
Oh, very cool! I think I must go buy some crayons now!
Really nice! Thanks for sharing.
Very nice design - love what you did with the lid. Thanks for sharing!
What a lovely design. Another application that I hadn’t thought of. Thanks for sharing.
Thank You for the share. I will make on & give to my Great Granddaughter .
Love that! is there a sharpener in the back?
Oh, that is very nice! I love the little holder inside…I will have to make a few of these for young friends for Christmas! Thank you for sharing your file…
I have raised several children and the immediate thought I had was how to extract the Too Short crayon that gets dropped into a slot.
Kid proof is much harder than idiot proof.
Came out looking great, but like I mentioned. Kids…
Great minds think alike-the box that I made for my granddaughter, I made to hold 64 crayons and I didn’t glue the rack. This way I can remove the rack and clean out the box.
Crayons that don’t fall down when you take out the one in front of them!
13 year old me would have loved this. I spent more time re-arranging my crayons…
Not judging, but that sounds a bit obsessive.
I can’t even keep my sock drawer neat, although the wife thinks that is important.
