'Cause it was pretty darned fun to make.
And poke kids with. And scratch your
Umkay, so. . . I went to grab myself a dog-eared fence board. I's just gonna make a flat pencil, ya know?
Well, next to those, are these totally cool, and totally crooked fence posts.
Hello? Round and pointy already? Picked out the straightest one I could find.
Now, these are 8 feet long, so I cut mine in half and now I have TWO pencils! Woot! Used the daddy-o's heavy duty sander to sharpen the other piece and give the "eraser" a but of a rounded off edge, and then ya get to paintin'.
Just slopped it on there.
And when I got to the eraser?
I used one of these pieces of metal I had leftover from some piece of crap or other. I believe these thin pieces of tin are called "flashing".
I'm not going to google "flashing" to find out if I'm right or not. Know what I'm sayin'?
Hehe. He. Hehe.
Just wrapped the flashing around, and screwed it right down into the wood.
Don't worry. That'll be the ugly side that stays to the wall.
Ginormous, 4 foot pencils for your kids to hurt each other/break a window/impale each other with!
Yee-ah. I'll be getting that hung up soon.
