The shop is still really cold, But I had to get out of the house. You can see frost on some of my tools and also on the wood!

I made this simple desktop pencil and notepad holder. I wanted to show off the Cherry Field Notes and one of my favourite pencils the Rotring 600.

What I learned or would have done differently?

I would not have chamfered the edges, I think that a light chamfer would have looked good but I went too far. In terms of the video I am trying to work on wider shots, lighting is also something that is becoming more and more of an issue. Since it is winter I keep the garage door closed and am relying on 4 LED bulbs so it’s not the best.

Success! You're on the list.

My name is Adam Patterson and I'm a full-time programmer and father. I make simple projects out of salvaged wood, steel, and other goodness.
