31 – Pencil Holders

Video - October 31, 2007

With the holiday season on its way, its time to start cranking out those gifts!! And that’s what we are going to do in this episode. I designed these simple little pencil holders several years ago just as a way of utilizing shop scrap. Turns out they make great gifts too. So get creative and try different color/wood combinations. Its hard to make these things look bad. This video covers wood selection, milling, and assembly of a fancy little pencil holder. Stay tuned for Episode 32 when we focus solely on finishing this piece.
