I shared an office with a lady who collected pencils, had a large cup on her desk full of them. I wanted to give her a gift for Christmas a few years ago. I had found a website were someone made carved pencils. So I gave it a try.
The snowman shown was the second try. The first left a LOT to be desired but I learned. Gave her the snowman one year.
The next year, I decided to try the Santa. First problem was finding red pencils. Found them at a teacher supply store. The Santa took two tries as well. I also carved one for each of my three daughters. Told them to use them as Christmas ornaments by sticking an ornament hook through the eraser.
This start has led to some more carving. I discovered Gene Messer’s youtube viideos and made some bigger Santas. I recently followed Lumberjocks own, Mike Pounders 5 minute Gnome. I will post those in the future.
Thanks for looking
