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

About: Come spend some time in the shop. I'm a hobbyist woodworker and professional computer geek in Northern California. I guess my projects will vary widely, and I have no clue what I plan to make next...

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.

    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.
