  1. Nice video! I like how you incorporate plywood into your stuff.

  2. MonkWerks with Fr. Thomas

    Beautiful, elegant, and simple. Great idea!

  3. Wood 'n' Stuff w/ Steve French

    Nice looking holders. The contrasting wood is a nice touch.

  4. From the thumbnail, I thought you had a rubberband around the pencil

  5. Making items like this, you deserve much more subscribers.

  6. Subscribers will come in time. 🙂 Thanks!

  7. love your ideas, I am fairly new at woodworking always looking for new
    ideas to do thanks, I will try this.

  8. Are your templates just standard copy paper?

  9. +Thomas Ferguson yes.

  10. you are awesome! Thank you so much for these!

  11. I was thinking of this idea to make for my daughter and will do an inlay of
    the letters of her name Maya and each side… well thats the plan anyways. 

  12. your pdf download links aren’t working

  13. ahhh… how i would love to have your tools

  14. very nice.

  15. I am going to try this for Christmas. I’ve only done minimal work with wood
    ( my dad does a lot of contruction, so he’s helped me make random stuff
    I’ve needed in the past ) but this looks like it’ll be a good first solo
    project. My only issue is I am using a handheld drill and not a drill
    press, since the drill press is very large so I don’t have one handy.

  16. the pdf of the measurements didn’t work for me :/

  17. At what degree did you cut that angle .

  18. I don’t remember. I think it was random.

  19. As much as I love the graphic art pencil holder, I have bad memories
    because a friend of mine wanted to see if he could break a pencil inside
    the holder

    (it worked)

  20. +Rey Paje 🙁

  21. didn’t see any measurements on your website

  22. Perry Productions

    At ~1:26 he said 70 degrees.

  23. I kinda want to make these but my tiny drill press only drills 2 inches :(

  24. Stylish and simple. I think I’ll give this a go. Thanks.

  25. I love watching your videos but i could not find your free plans on the
    pencil holders
