Lego Pencil Holder

Thought I would share my latest creation for my son, a huge Lego brick fan. I turned this Lego man head out of a solid piece of oak. I decided that since he loves to draw as well, then a pencil holder might be a useful item for him now and in the future. I used a burning tool to add the face, and it even has a secret compartment. The dimensions are scaled up from the Lego measurements from the little guy you see here (who fits in the compartment). It was a fun project and I think the really enjoyed receiving it. My hope is that it will be a fond memory of me after I am long gone.

The bottom can be removed only by sticking a small screw driver through a hole at the bottom of the pencil holder portion. You push and the center of the bottom comes out. The floor of the pencil portion remains. I then cut a part out to allow him to keep his favorite Lego minifig. It was a snug fit for the figure, but it worked.
