Vintage Grater Pencil Cup

A rusty vintage grater with a great wooden handle.

Vintage grater pencil cup

mounted to a piece of reclaimed wood painted white.

I used screws to attach the grater to the wood and used a piece of cork to close off the bottom of the grater.

Two holes in the top of the board hold a thick piece of macrame jute for hanging.
