Marker Box

My desk is closest to our team whiteboard at work so I end up with lots of dry erase markers, permanent markers, post-it notes, and erasers floating around. I headed out to the garage to play around with some scrap wood that I picked up from Crosscut in Seattle.

The box is REALLY simple. I screwed around trying to make some box joints but didn’t get them to look good enough for this so I dropped that and just did rabbet joints. I don’t know what kind of wood this is, but for the buck or two I paid for it, it turned into something useful. Simple, but useful. I finished it off with a few coats of spray lacquer.
