Video: Want to add a little DIY to your desk? YouTuber Patrick Soriano shows off how to use an old piece of 4×4 to make a couple of different desk accessories.

All you need to do is grab a small, 15cm piece of 4×4 and cut that down a little bit. From there, you make a few cuts to create the holder at the front of the accessory, then drill holes for either a succulent or some pens. It’s a super easy project that just about anyone can do provided you have the tools. You’ll find everything you need, including the templates, over on YouTube.
