I decided to make a pen holder to store pens laying around on my desk and this is what I came up with. Take a look how I made it on my YouTube Channel!

I like the simplicity and result. I have struggled with a simple way to make wand boxes. I think this is the solution.

Your video scared the wits out of me when you were cutting the block on the table saw as your fingers were right over the blade! I saw the push stick but you need to get yourself a pushbolck man!

But, overlooking the safety issues, this is a nice elegant project!
Did you use rare earth magnets?

I am currently making one however I am having troubles with it griping. No, they are neodymium magnets

WoodWorkingFusion, try an old mouse pad or jar opening grip pad or a some diaphragm rubber for the gripper!

Very nice project, and informative video!

And Oldnovice is right, you’ve really gotta start using push pads and push blocks with your tablesaw and router table. For better grip, use some self-adhesive sandpaper.

Not ragging on you—just don’t want to see you lose a finger!
