Pencil cup


I found some bits of timber in our firewood that I thought, due to the colour, might be something a bit more interesting than pine, so I put one of them on the lathe and made it round. It was not more interesting than pine, in fact it's just pine. All the colour was on the outside.

When you're TTRPGing, one thing you need ready access to is a plenitude of pencils. So I finished the boring bit of pine into a pencil cup and stained and waxed it. It's a quicky job, and the finishing is pretty crappy, but it will serve for this job.

Being a thin-walled end-grain turning, it naturally split, so it'd be no good for holding liquid. And besides, all that stain and stuff would taste pretty awful.
