This is a simple pencil & pen holder that I completed in one weekend (A few weeks ago). I have never worked with Walnut, so I decided to start with a small project.

Bigger projects are on the drawing board (SMILE). I have a few more woods that I would like to test before investing.

Thanks for the encouragement. I really like this site.

Nice simple design. So you have a better bench. Walnut is a nice wood to work with, I use it quite a bit. I’m sure that you will start building bigger things now..

From the picture, it appears that the corners are mitered. Did you use dowels or biscuits, or something else for the dividers? I can’t tell from the picture? Dadoed, maybe?

Looks good. Personally, I love working with walnut. I love the richness of the color and the grain patterns I’ve been dealing with lately. I even love using the sapwood sometimes for a bit of variance and contrast.

Keep it up!

What else is in the works?
