Box jointed pallet pencil cup

My son has been enjoying coloring books a lot lately and using his fine-tipped markers. He wanted a container for them to use at our dining room table, and he didn't care for the spare plastic container we had lying around. Having recently finished making a box joint jig, I was looking for an excuse to use it. So we came up with a box-jointed pencil cup, made from pallet wood, and finished to match our dining room decor.

  • Wow! This is a beautiful display of quality craftsmanship. Thank you for including the images showing your process, too! It's cool to see the pencil cup taking shape. The finished product looks so flawless- it's hard to imagine that wood was once part of a pallet. Great work!
