I thought the Wood Whisper’s pencil holder was a great little weekend project. I got part way into the job and decided to add a bit of a twist. I added a slot for business cards!
I’m not 100% sure what the wood is (I “acquired” from my dad’s lumber pile).
Finish is Arm-R-Shield. I think I’ll give it a few more coats then give it to my dad as a thank you for the lumber that he “gave” me!!!

I’m gonna steal your nice idea to make the business card holder my daughter asked for. Now I just need a piece of nice lumber to “liberate” – to keep in the spirit of things.

Way to use the “reclaimed” lumber. Definitely looks like Walnut to me. I’ve only used a limited number of woods, but walnut is my favorite. Can’t be sure as to what type of Walnut. Great redesign. Keep raiding your Dad’s stock!

Good looking project. USCJeff – that wasn’t “reclaimed” lumber it was “Claimed” lumber. I guess that is what us dad’s are for – half of my hand tools are in Baton Rouge with my youngest son :-))

cool. The business card section could also hold sticky notes ready to use.
