So I saw this pencil holder in MereMortals, and as i wanted to do a lamp and that holder gave me this idea.

the pencils in the corner are fixed with brad nails, but the other ones you can remove them in case you need one. i wanted to leave it without screen but the socket looks kinda ugly there so i use the same translucent paper, and it really looks great.

i think this will be a nice gift for a teacher, just in case they need a pencil.

btw, the wood i used is mahogany.

That is really an original design. I really like it. You can take out a pencil, use it and put a new one in later.

When my first born was moving out of his baby bed I wanted to make a four poster bed with enlarged pencils as the four post but the boss nixed that idea,
