Woodworking Plan - Pen and Pencil Holder

Use a power sander or hand sand the wood on both sides.

Make a copy of the plan. After making a copy, cut around the outside edge of the pattern leaving a 1/4" to 1/2" of paper around the pattern lines.

Spray the pattern with spray adhesive. Let dry a few seconds and attach to the wood. Saw around outside lines and then remove pattern. Use mineral spirits to remove stubborn glue.

Sand with sandpaper to remove any imperfections.

Drill eight equally spaced 3/8" holes, one inch deep, in the top back of the dog.

Apply two coats of paint letting it dry between coats.
