Step 1: Materials and Cost of Project
3 wood pencils
1 slim crayola marker
duct tape/electrical tape
or anything else that fits in the barrel
this project should cost about 5-10 bucks so its reasonably cheap
Step 2: Step 1
simply cut the pencil in half
its better if the pencil is insharpened
Step 3: Step 2
next, get the crayola marker and cut about 4 inches off the middle and make it hollow on both sides
Step 4: Step 4
stick the two pencil halfs into the crayola marker piece evenly
Step 5: Step 5
then use the tape to secure both sides evenly and tightly so it does not slip out
then cut another piece of the crayola marker.
if u are short marker then use two because the barrel should be long for better accuracy.
Step 6: Final Step
for the last part tape each side of the rubber band as shown in the picture tightly so it does not get loose
Step 7: Loading the Skewer
loading the skewer is obvious but if you need help look at the picture
