Thanks for sharing Theresa, they must have good lead in their pencils, I break mine just trying to sharpen them with the Stanley knife. Sorry and darn good eyesight. Very clever.

What the pictures don’t tell you is that the “pencils” started out as 2X4s. heehee..just kidding.
Very delicate work, that.

That is a good use for your short pencils that don’t reach the cutter in the pencil sharpener. I’ll give mine to anyone who wants to carve them. I can’t see that close any more . Some one is very good at miniature carving!!!!!
