Hi, Welcome to my second instructable. This one is a simple pencil/pen holder.
I will guide you through everything.

Lets start with the "PROS AND CONS!"

It keeps your pencils and pens in one place.

It has no bottom

Well enough talk, lets build!                                                                                                   

Step 1: Gather Your Pieces.

Hello, and welcome to step 2. I am pretty sure you have gotten all the pieces you need. So I will now tell you what pieces you need for this step

16 Green Rods
16 Green Connectors

Now comes the hard part. Building it! (just kidding)

Just follow the photos. It seems simple enough.
                                                                                   When you are done just press this button
                                                                                                                                                            \/ \/

Step 3: The Sides

Welcome to step 3. I am sure you completed step 2. So now now that you entered step 3 we should probably continue.
First gather these:
24 Red Rods

Now just follow the photos and you should be fine. If you are confused, the rods will snap into the triangle gaps you get between the connectors.

                                                                                                 Almost Done Just click this Button

Thank you! My next instructable will more advanced.


Well, the K'NEX community has moved from things like roller coasters and video game holders. It is generally accepted that if you don't build good guns, your just another nOOb. Now, this is not my view, but that is the general view, I believe. I don't know how many K'NEX you have, but if you have quite a few, I would suggest that you start building other peoples guns. Now, when I was a nOOb, I thought building other peoples guns were lame, because then I was not producing any of my own. But, building other peoples guns has made me WAY better than I might have been, so I suggest you get building. Have fun!

So, building ball machines from 2 metres high is for nOObs? :)

Haha that's a late comment :p

Wow, it is. Oh how time flies

www139 (author)daredevil4992014-03-30

No kidding!

www139 (author)sandroknexmaster2014-02-22

er... yeah.

"Now, this is not my view, but that is the general view, I believe."

Maybe I could try to build a gun... It'll suck but I don't care! :)
BTW I've allready built a gun a long time ago:
Nah, after seeing this, I think it's better if I continue building ball machines :D

www139 (author)sandroknexmaster2014-02-17

I don't like to either.

But my bro does!

I guess that's the general view.

uhum... Then I guess you don't want to see the first, exclusive photo's of my newest ball machine where I'm working on right now...

I don't agree with Red man, I was just being sarcastic.

And I gave you a sarcastic answer, I wasn't serious :D

oh :-)

haha :)

I have about 7500 knex and I am working on a semi-auto knex handgun.

Oblivitus (author)daredevil4992012-12-11

Are you using all of them in the handgun? (sorry, couldn't resist)

daredevil499 (author)Oblivitus2014-02-20

That would be a very large gun!


daredevil499 (author)Oblivitus2012-12-11

no, i was just telling red man how many knex pieces i have. that would be a very big handgun. :-)

Too simple of a build, but I guess it's an ok pencil holder. Looks cool though.
