This design has been kicking around in my head for a couple of months. I finally got around to building it over the weekend. It took several iterations to get things working right, and I thought about scrapping it when I couldn’t get the sliding top to slide easily enough. But I’m kinda stubborn, and I finally figured out how to make it work. :slight_smile:

And of course, Gkid needed one for the engraved pink pencils she requested:
