Every now and then, my husband dreams up a very specific project, and immediately makes it. There’s usually not much ruminating or “hmm, what should I make”, but rather “I’m going to make a pencil holder and this is what it’s going to look like.” Impressive.
This is a trick pencil holder of sorts. The two wooden pieces float, suspended amongst the 20 pencils.
Have you spotted how it works? Of course you have. =) Three of the pencils are glued in place, with their sharpened tips holding the whole piece up.
