    Scrap Wood Gifts

    I have a couple of guys that are always helping me with my computer isues,Not very good with them. So I wanted to make something for them and saw this on Woodwisperer. I Had some Curly Maple and a piece of Cherry. It is a pencil box or Pencil holder,what ever you want to call it. For the top of there desk. Was simple and fun to do.

    Very cool, Ron. I'll bet those will get a lot of use and be very appreciated.

    Really cool Ron. They came out beautiful.
    I have boxes of small cut offs and was wondering what to do with them.

    Ron i dare not let my wife see those. She has been on to me to make her some of those for ages. They look really nice. Ones she wants need to be made in wood she can paint. So i got some pine to do it.
    cheers

    Thanks to all for the reply. It has beenvery hot here, in the upper 90s and due point in the 70s. S0 even with a fan on it is warm in the shop. But once you get a project in motion,you don't seem to notice so much.

    I thought the same thing Larry 'till I looked at the date. Ron posted that in August!
    You actually missed welcoming Suzanne Pacheco to the family. She resurected this thread with her post today.
