I blame this predicament on being a bit unorganized and being new in the woodworking field.
It seems every time I put a pencil down, I can never find it again.
I figured someday I am going to have to make a shop pencil holder.
The other day I was looking at my box of Hardwood Scraps and wondered whatever am I going to do with all these little pieces?
Click (lightbulb) I know… I’m going to make a pencil holder out of them.
I gathered a bunch of pieces and glued them all together, trimmed the edges and planed them flat.
I now have 100% scrap flat stock.
I resawed (?) the larger piece on the band saw and used the pencil holder plans found on The Wood Whisperer.
Thanks Marc & Nicole.
This was really easy to do and I have a few more ideas for the rest of the scrap, because as we all know, there is a never ending supply of scrap wood going into the box.
Thanks for looking.

Great idea Paul. By now I could probably make about a hundred of them!
Good to see you are still in the workshop.
