New Suzuribako in Progress

This project ate up a bunch of my time last week, and here's a picture of what I have so far.


My old suzuribako was just a simple small box. This one is larger (the interior is 8.5"x11") and the inside has holders for the ink stone, ink stick, and water dropper, as well as curved rests for one or two full-size brushes.

It's actually sitting on the actual workbench! I got sick of not being able to work on my workbench, and cleaned it off. Unbelievable, I know. I also sanded the surface a bit and worked in a bit of sanding sealer to make a nicer work surface. The next step will be removing all the tools from the pegboard and re-arranging the whole layout of tool storage.
