took the Wood whisperers pencil holder and added a little bit to it. I think next time I will add a little piece of wood to the front where I put the core groove. Overall I am happy with this…And I got the walnut pretty cheap cause it was leftovers…You cant see it in the pictures because of the angle, but I wrapped the grain around the holders so that on 3 sides there is a continuation from the side before it.

Nice job. I love the finish you put on it. Walnut finishes great when done right, and yours looks awosome. I like the grain wrap idea.

I have to Agree, that’s very nice… That would work well in a Business Environment at a Bank or some sort…

The customers and clients would Dig that, would probably be a pretty good Seller on etsy or something.

I just did a simple finish of Formby’s Tung oil finish(2 coats) with 2 coats of Gloss Poly 0000 steel wool buff with a final coat of satin poly.

Looks great. A nice job.

Some day when you show up at my shop, I’ll have to show you how to make all 4 corners have the grain match.

And you thought it would be impossible.
