Hello all of you desk jockeys wishing you had someplace to put your pens!

This post is of a project that is for Emiloo for her desk at work, a simple pen holder.

It is rings of aromatic cedar and regular cedar (I do have a bunch of that don't I?). These were all drilled out with 4" hole saws, stacked and glued, then turned smooth on the lathe. It is also finished with tung oil, then buffed with steel wool and more coats of tung oil. The inside has some polyurethane which is having a hard time drying out but it will probably be ok. Holding it in your hand it kind of sparkles, this is from the tung oil seeping into the grain and I really like the look of it. It would look good on any desk I think, and keep the moths away too!

That's all for now! Thanks again for stopping by!
