Chopping Board Needs a Job

If you have lets say few pencils and a chopping board you never use. If you have seen Lesley Crawford's Lazy Susan Coloured Pencil Holder AND you remembered there is a drill and drillbits somewhere hiding in your house...

This is the start:

I'm not sure what happens next. :D BUT Couple of hours later:

Here's a grid I printed and now I'm marking each pothole pencil hole with knitting needle and my tiny hammer. Hehee... this is so much fun! It has to be diagonal, because the chopping board is made of blocks, so it does not put too much pressure on seams. LOL, women logic?

Another couple of hours later: It looks okay. Marking is done, also a bit of sanding. Tomorrow I do a test drill, or should I say DRILL DRILL? lol. IF the result is what I'm aiming for, block is full of holes, and after another sanding session it will get a lick of paint.

Yeah, that is what I'm aiming for... lol.


  1. I'm not sure where it goes from here either. LOL. I guess it's a good way of having the pencils sit up a little higher than the table, or you can categorize some of your colors together.... Love, dj

  2. Sounds a great idea to me. Make sure you are well centered above the board to do the drilling...more chance of the hole going straight down instead of over to one side or the other. Look forward to seeing how you get on. Hugs lin

  3. You might find it easier to start with a small drill bit and gradually enlarge....forgive if i'm teaching my grandmother to suck eggs lol. Hugs lin
