So I have a real Monday Made It, and a sneaky, cheeky, not so real Monday Made It to share with you today.
I'll go with the real one first!
Ok so last year my buddy teacher Zelda had this really cool pencil holder! Unfortunately, she took it with her to her new school. Hence the need to "make" one! I loved how her one worked, with out having to count a single pencil, she could tell at a glance how many were missing. LOVE IT!!!
So I made my own! Totally awesome might I add!
Check it out.
|I started with an off cut of 4 x 4|
|Measured and ruled lines to show where I wanted the holes|
|Disclaimer - my dad chose the drill bit, so you will have to figure that out for yourself sorry|
|Drill down about 5 cm (2 in)|
|I did plan to drill all the way across, but left the row in the middle so I can see pens on one side, and pencils on the other|
|Then I used the belt sander to make it nice and smooth|
|In the spirit of using recycled materials, I used some leftover paint from the garage.|
|I might just add some labels to it later on - to show pens/pencils|
And now for the cheeky made it.
