Tiger Maple Pencil Holder

KAPOW = Kevin’s Art Project of the Week

This week I carved a two barrel pencil holder out of a block of tiger maple. There may have been more sawing, drilling, filing, and sanding than actual carving. I originally intended the chunk of tiger maple for a wood-turning project, but the odd-size and shape of it seemed more appropriate for a carving project (the swoops at the top were already there). And I could see the pencil holder shape…..

The textured pattern of the maple is pretty incredible.

I finished the pencil holder with a simple coat of boiled linseed oil.

Remember, there is no definition of art…..
