I’m looking to make wood pencil holder, like the following:

Though, before I can begin, I need to find a decent piece of wood. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to go about finding wood in San Diego? I’m thinking Craigslist might be an option.

Thank you!

Look for a tree trimming service.

Look around to see who is trimming trees. I would leave the bark on it would look more rustic. But that is just my 2 cents. I make rustic candle holders and leave the bark on.

Thanks…good suggestions! If it is recently cut wood, can I drill into it, or does it need to dry out for a certain amt of time?
