This fun flowery round hand-crafted organizer was originally intended to be a colored pencil organizer as shown in the photos. It may also be used to organize dry paint brushes, sculpting tools (sharp points should face up), jewelry making tools, or even as a desk organizer for pens and pencils.
This yellow and black organizer is made of very heavy duty corrugated tubes with a bottom base approximately 14" in diameter (these tubes are not toilet paper tubes but rather strong tubes that held large mapping paper -huge difference). It is all one piece - the tubes glued together and glued to the base. The base is also corrugated, decorated and made more durable with an adorable daisy duct tape. There is a thin layer of satin varnish inside and outside the tubes. This item is not on a turntable / lazy susan, although I was pleasantly surprised to discover there are some smooth table surfaces it will turn nicely on just by gently turning.
As a colored pencil organizer, it will hold over 550 standard width pencils (Crayola, Prisma Premier or Scholar, Bic Conte, Rose Art, etc.) Thicker pencils like Faber Castell Polychromos may be around 500 although I do not have that many of that brand so cannot give an exact number it would store. The middle tube is wider than the others and as shown in the pictures this larger tube is holding 70 pencils. In the picture that shows the next outer row of filled tubes, the tubes are holding anywhere from 24 - 33 pencils.... a total of 267 pencils shown with the middle and first outer row filled, and that leaves 14 tubes still empty waiting to be filled. The tubes go from tallest to shortest from the middle extending outward, with the highest middle tube being 5.75", and the lowest tubes on the outer edge being ~3.25".
Please note: This item is NOT intended for tea light or any other candles, toothbrushes, or any items or areas that would be wet or contain solvents as it is all made of corrugated which in essence is strong pressed paper.
