Introduction: Cedar Cube Paper Clip and Pen Holder

About: Have always enjoyed woodworking. Finally got back to it after retirement. Having a great time.

Very simple project. You need a 2/18 inch and a 1/2" forestner bit and a 2" piece of 4 x 4 cedar. I prefer the smooth sided cedar. Mark off 2 inches and cut. Mark center of piece. Set depth of cut to your preference, making sure you don't drill through the bottom. Hold piece securely and cut the 21/8" hole. Next ...drill the 4 outside 1/2" holes. DONE! Fill with paper clips and you favorite pens and enjoy. Bill
