A log slice (about 4 inches tall and 4 inches wide)

Drill and 1/2 inch spade bit

Possibly a pencil.

I found this log at a campsite.  It was just too adorable to burn.

You could use any size log and make any amount of holes you want.

Imagine a 24 piece set of colored pencils all arranged in a log slice…aw, heaven.

*I pretreated the log by baking it in the oven at 275* for about 30 minutes,

then turning it over for another 30 minutes.

It needs to dry or it can crack as it dries out over time.

I lightly sanded the top of the log.

Get your 1/2 inch bit locked and loaded.

Drill the first hole directly in the center…then space the other holes at least 1/4″ away.

Don’t drill all the way through the log.  Just down about 2-3 inches.

The point of the bit is the center of the circle.

7 holes fits great in a log this size.

It’s perfect for my scripture marking sticks!

 I love drilling–and seeing so much saw dust just pour out!

Work outside for easy clean up!

 If you haven’t used a spade bit before it takes a little practice, but it is really fun!

 All 7 holes about the same depth each.
