If you're like me then you probably have some extra logs just laying around outside. It's time to put them to some good use. I hope you enjoy this instructable!

Step 1: What You'll Need
#1 a small log
#1 drill press
#2 a chop saw (cut off saw)
Step 2: Cutting Your Log
I cut my log about 4 inches log and about 3 inches thick. It doesn't really matter. Just make sure it's big enough to hold the pencils that you need.
Step 3: Drilling the Holes
When I drilled my holes I used a 5/16 of an inch drill bit. With this size you can fit just about every pencil you can think of. On a very rare occasion will you find a pencil that doesn't fit. Space your holes out about a cm apart but also try to get as many holes on there as you can fit. I got a total of 28 holes on mine which is more than enough for me.
