Make a Medieval Drawing and art Box

This is a drawing box. That's what I call it because it is a custom made box for holding drawing and art supplies.

And I call this one a medieval drawing box because it holds all my various hand made drawing supplies like feather pens, inks and home made paper.

I have tutorials on how to make all those various things.

I also show you how to easily custom make your box for your art supplies.

I also have a video tutorial for this project at the bottom of the page.

I have a youtube channel with over 700 videos on projects you can make. Check it out right here

Sanded plywood inside cover

We build it with a nice piece of sanded plywood on the inside of the cover. This way we have a nice drawing surface that we can take anywhere.







The inside of the box

And we custom make the tray so it fits the art and drawing supplies that we have.







The compartment underneath

And under the tray is a section where we can store paper, sketch pads and other large sheets.
