I usually have about 3 sticky note pads on my desk at work and I can never find them. After Christmas I had a small piece of Zebra wood left over so I decided to make something for myself. I finished it with a couple coats of tung oil and polished it with the Beal Wood Buffing system. I threw a clock in from woodcraft just for hahas…

Great use of scrap wood. I need one of these. Thanks for the idea. Nice tight miters on the pencil holder by the way.

The corners appear to be flawlessly rabbetted on my monitor…..excelllent grain flow.

This came out perfectly….now I have a use for my Zebrawood as well ! hahahaa
The finish looks great also , Tom : )
The clock and BC holder make it a truly functional piece of desktop furniture .
Added to my favorites and soon to be imitated with your permission , Sir.

Actually Shannon, they were rabbit joints, but the stripes of the Zebrawood make them almost invisible. That’s probably what I learned the most out of this project. The next time I use Zebrawood, I’ll almost certainly use rabbit joint..

Great use of scraps and a great trick to be able to learn the joints look great.

Thanks Tom , but this one will be hard to beat ….It’s a real beauty and right now I can’t think of any way to improve on it…..maybe I’ll make two of them …a left and a right handed version…what do you think ? LOL
The Zwood that I have has a lot more “heavy” dark striping in it so I don’t think that I could pull off the excellent grain matching as well as you have done . Have a great day , Tom and thanks again : )

Hey thanks Dusty… Looking forward to seeing yours. I love it when old projects resurface on LJs. Sometimes I find myself just browsing through my own projects like looking at an old photo album. Lots of great memories.
