A couple of weeks ago, you might remember, I made a small box by wrapping a bamboo "sushi rolling mat" around a couple of blocks of wood. I sort of picked dimensions for it at random, but soon after that, I realized what size it should have been, and what needed to be stored in one of these. Luckily, I had bought two mats.
Another Bamboo Box
It needed to be big enough to hold four bamboo sake cups. I'd bought these cups mail order so we could take them to SCA events, and they were being stored in a plastic zippy bag. That was unacceptable.
Box Open, with Cups
I cut some 2 inch squares of cypress, got out the glue, and picked a braid. Still not glamorous, but useful. I'm stillnot sure what I'm going to use the other one for, but this one is now full of stuff.
