I have one of these pencil holders in my classroom and have had a lot of requests for them. Some people number each hole and the student with that number chooses that particular pencil. They range in size from 35 holes to 20 holes. Plus they come in cedar or pine. The size is approximately 5 1/2 inches wide and 12 inches long and 4 inches tall. It's an unfinished wood block so you can sand and paint it or just use it the way it is. It's a great asset for classroom management regardless if you teach at an elementary or secondary school. This one is cedar and holds 35 pencils.
