This is a birthday present made from the leftovers of my bandsaw box project. It has changed shape and dimensions a few times during turning, because I found out I didn’t have the right tools and experience to make a pen stand with a narrow hole in the center, which was the original idea.

Maybe that’s the reason why it can be both, a paper clip holder (with a rare earth magnet in a hole right in the center) and a tea light holder. Again finished with a couple of layers of bee wax.

I might have accomplished something in softer wood, but scraping away all that material with a gauge would have taken forever and killed my basic tools.

I’m not quite sure what you mean by “gun project”. Is there any idiomatic meaning hidden or is it simply because the magnet makes it look like a loaded barrel :-) ???
