Pencil Holder from Scrap Wood

So much scrap wood. These are all nice pieces of hardwood but generally too thin to do much with.

01 - My cut offs

 

Selected my pieces. I see maple, white oak, zebrawood, canarywod, mahogany, walnut purpleheart, and perhaps another couple species in there.

02 - Acceptable pieces

 

Rough cut to size

03 - Cut to length

 

Glued up

04 - Glue up

 

Planed

05 - After planing

 

I cut the piece into two strips, mitered the edges to 45 degree, and then cut the strips in half.

06 - Cut in four pieces and edges mitered

 

Glued up with just rubber bands.

07 - Gluing up the edges

 

It’s a no go. I had to switch to clamps.
