Not much time to start any big projects over the Holidays so I thought I would dig thru the shorts box and try some of those pencil holders Spagnolo was showing how to build last month. I thought using tape to assemble instead of clamps was a neat idea that worked better than expected. A nice quick Christmas gift. Walnut base and birdseye maple.

My first thoughts about a pencil holder podcast was, “boring”. Marc makes them engaging, however. I’m close to being done with a few of these myself. Like you said, the shorts pile is all you need. Well done

I am making my wife’s tomorrow, but I’ll make it long with about 3 compartments. It’ll be the first project I post to lumberjocks, so look for it! (wow I hope I don’t screw up now)
