How to Make a Pencil Holder

January 27, 2015


I was asked by a viewer if I could make a pencil holder. I made this out of some leftover 3/4″ scrap wood. I ran it through the planer to mill it down to a 1/2″ thick. I then ran the boards through the table saw to create 1/2″ rabbets on 2 of the side pieces. I then glued up the pieces side pieces and let that dry. After all that was done, I a piece to size for the bottom of the holder. I then cut 4 rabbets in the board and glued it in the bottom of the pencil holder. Let it dry and it’s all done.
