January 11th was my birthday and I wanted to draw each other to celebrate the day with my boyfriend.
For we don't have any coloring tools here in dorm, we bought some color pencils.
I have a pencil holder big enough to put extra 6 color pencils in
but I wanted to keep them separately :)
So I made this color pencil holder!
Step 1: Materials
**I used Laser Cutter.
I don't have any woodworking tool and don't have any skill in it.
However I can use laser cutter near my college.
So I usually use laser cutting when I want to make something.
You need :
1. color pencil or something you want to hold
2. extra pencil
3. pieces of wood cut into the shape you want : I used 6t MDF
Step 2: Sanding
With sandpaper sand the cut MDF appropriately.
It will be sanded again after gluing once more.
Step 3: Gluing Six Pieces
I have 5 pieces with holes and 1 piece without holes
glue them into two pieces
*first one is : one with holes + one with holes + one with holes + one with holes
*second one is : one with holes + one without holes
You should clean the glue popped out to make sure color pencil goes in well.
Step 4: Gluing Extra Pencil 1
Glue the bottom of extra pencil to the second one I made in previous step.
Clean the glue popped out of the hole.
Step 5: Gluing Extra Pencil 2
Glue the other piece to middle of the pencil.
I laid it on the side until the glue dry over.
Step 6: Done!
After drying and sanding a bit more, it is done.
Now put the color pencils into the pencil holder!
It is easy to make, look neat(?) and great :))))))
