    Fashioned from a revolver cylinder, this is 2 hunks of Oak and laminated together, then turned round, about 3 3/4", parting off the bottom for the base.

  4. Teacher desk name plates

    We decided to make gifts for my kids' teachers this Christmas. We used Siberian Elm for all of them. On the back side is a "trough" for pens/pencils. The two parts are not attached so they could be turned around if they prefer them that way. We used the CNC router in my classroom at school to...

  8. Pencil Holder - Box Elder

    This is a pencil holder I am working on. The main idea was taken from Marc Spagnuolo (TheWoodWhisperer) with some slight modifications. Instead of putting the holder on a base, I inset a bottom inside of a rabbit. Still to do: Sanded to 320, applied four coats of waterlox sealer / finish...

  11. Lego Pencil Holder

    Thought I would share my latest creation for my son, a huge Lego brick fan. I turned this Lego man head out of a solid piece of oak. I decided that since he loves to draw as well, then a pencil holder might be a useful item for him now and in the future. I used a burning tool to add the face...

  15. 100% Scrap Wood Pencil Holder

    I blame this predicament on being a bit unorganized and being new in the woodworking field. It seems every time I put a pencil down, I can never find it again. I figured someday I am going to have to make a shop pencil holder. The other day I was looking at my box of Hardwood Scraps and wondered...
  16. Pencil Holder

    I thought I'd try my hand at something small for a change, and my pencil kept rolling off the desk, so I came up with this idea. I usually make big things, as you know, and there were new challenges here - how do you hold a strip of wood less than an inch wide while you route at it etc? Still -...
