Introduction: Pencil Drawer. a Place for the One Thing I'm Always Losing...

I made a drawer for the one thing I'm always losing in the shop.

It's just a 1" dowel, with a channel and a turned pull. I drilled out a 35mm hole and now I'll always know where to find my pencil.

nice !!!…

Next invent a drawer that will follow you everywhere you go and need a pencil !…

Awesome idea. Could take a piece of the cut dowel, and insert in the top of the hole in the work bench to keep the cylindrical drawer from rotating and dumping your pencils out in the work bench.

Very nice!
Do you made the wooden tools you use to help to push the dowel?

Push sticks are invaluable!
