Intro: Wood Pencil

This is my first instructable so it might be bad, please comment and like this so i will make more instructables, please follow me.

Step 1: Materials

Nice, Dry Stick
Drill and drill bit
Extra Pencil
Knife (shaping)
Low grit sand paper (80 is good)

This is very easy and can be done in about an hour.

Step 2: Shaping

1. Take your log and cut it to be about 5 inches.

2. On one end of the stick, carve the stick into a point.

3. Sand your pencil so that it is nice and smooth.

Step 3: The Lead

1. Using your knife or scissors, cut the pencil in half so your can take the lead out.

2. Using a bit bigger then the lead, drill a hole in the pointed end of your stick.

3. Super glue the lead in and using your knife, shape it so the lead doesn't squeak.

Step 4: Extra Things

Your could woodburn your pencil, or you can leave it natural.

You can basically do whatever you want with the pencil.
