Our grandaughter was over and asked if I could make a pencil holder for their refrigerator like I made for her that she sticks on her desk at school. Hers was made from the unused half of a bottle opener I made.
I had this piece of turned cedar that had a split in it and it would be perfect since I had to split it in half after turning. She decided on the length and away we went.
So this is what came out of that piece- 2 pencil holders with turned cedar fronts and walnut backs and two 3/4” rare earth magnets in each. I would have liked to center the red section, but because of where the split was, the red sections were off center.
They are finished with Deft satin lacquer.
