1

Mill Base parts

Mill the base of the pencil box and pen stand out of a sheet of corian. This is the longest cut of the project and will take several hours.

2

Mill top parts

Mill the top of the pen stand. Make sure to double check the tolerances of the parts you already cut for a proper fit. This is also a good point to customize the holes in the pen stand to fit your favorite type of pen!

Mill the lid for the pencil box

This part you can either cut from the 3/4in walnut if you have the patience, or you can get an eighth inch sheet that matches in color.

Finishing and Assembly

These parts may take a bit of sanding to get a proper fit and finish. After sanding finish with your choice of oil and assemble the parts. If you kept the tolerances tight like we did you can get a friction fit, otherwise you can glue the pieces together.
