Last weekend we decided to host a kid’s workshop. The craft we made was this pencil case. The design is a miniature version of a tool box used by carpenters in Japan.

Materials and tools ready.

The kids all ready to go.

First step, to bond all the sides together using quick-drying wood bond.

Using masking tape to “clamp” the materials.

Bonding the bottom.

Making the lid.

Finishing touches: sand papering the edges.

All done and complete.


We plan on having a few more workshops soon. When I asked the kids what they would like to make next, they replied “a house”.

So I guess a barbie house? Maybe a real sized play house? We will have to see.
