Turning this pencil was a LOT like turning the pen. So much so that I almost didn’t want to write about it. However, I had so many questions emailed to me about the pen and the steps I took during assembly; I decided to go ahead and write about the pen’s partner in crime the pencil. The lathe work is basically identical to what I did for the Slimline Pen. However, the assembly is slightly different. Regardless of the differences it’s a super simple project that can be turned and assembled in minutes. You’ll really get a kick out of having a pen and pencil set when it’s all done. These also make great gifts that anyone would love to receive.
For this pencil I used used paduk wood. It looks very clean and beautiful look to it.
I put links at the bottom of this post where you can find some of the items I used to turn this. I also put together a video of how I made this below.
