I had this slab of wood that was thought to be box elder but I think is mulberry. I had it on the lathe and then decided I was not going to cut a bowl all end grain so I cut it up into pieces and made these little pencil cans. I have been thinking about how to get some stuff off my bench and one of them was that plastic cup full of pencils. A wall mount pencil can would do it. I got 4 of them out of that slab.
The angle on the back is to keep them tipped up when on the wall and it works okay on the bench too. They all have a screw hole in the bottom and are finished with shellac.
