There are various vessels containing pencils (and accoutrements) all over our house. This, one of the most recently added, was a box that held hankies (I bought the latter). I only realized recently that it holds pencils perfectly. It’s contained assorted stuff on my dresser for a few years and is pleasantly banged up. It also disguises some of the mess around HQ.
