The Quick & Easy Marker Holder

Stuff Needed:

3/16 wood (any kind should work & cut it to a workable size)
magnets
super glue

Other Stuff Needed:
Access to Corel Draw
Access to a Laser cutter


This is a TechShop Production.

Step 1: The Cut File

Get your stuff together, and figure out how big you want to make this holder.  Then using Corel draw, design your box and lay it out for the laser.

Step 2: Cutting It Out

Once your happy with your design, move over to your laser and cut it out.

Step 3: ...Stop - Puzzle Time

Now that you have the pieces of your box cut out, it's time to assemble the parts, just like a puzzle.

Step 4: Da Magnets

Now that your box is assembled, it's time to add the magnets ( make sure they are strong enough to hold the weight,  I thought 5 would be plenty, but these magnets were pretty weak, and any less would not have held).  A little superglue on the back, and they are attached.

Step 5: Done

And there you have it, a quick and easy dry erase marker holder for your magnetic white boards.

    wouldn't it be best to orient the markers tip down so they the ink stays in the tip?

    This is a great project but I object to the statement that you need corel draw and a laser cutter, it could be sketched with a pencil or any drawing program and cut from balsa wood with a razor knife or coping saw and hand drill or even a thick chunk of balsa wood and an appropriate sized drill bit or bits. A more appropriate wording would be on the lines of " I used corel draw"

    Shawn's statements are correct. To make THIS project, you need access to a laser.
