Pencil Case

This is primarily made from 5-6oz leather, however the lid and base are both made using oblong 1/4” thick elmwood branch cutoffs.

It’s a pretty basic design, 2”x2”x7”.

I included a photo of a leather sheath I made for my hatchet, using some of the remaining leather. Finished both the leather and wood with Sno-Seal and paste wax.

Thanks for looking!

Well, I guess wood pencil cases are more buff / durable than plastics or the platinum ones. Nice work!

‘ppreciate the support. There’s a lot of backlash against non-wood working projects on LJ, which is completely justified. However, as a fellow woodworker it would be great to be able to showcase crafted projects using other materials to the LJ community specifically. We work with wood, but have valuable insight and potentially innovative insight regarding work using other materials.

I included this project to start a discussion based on this.
