Hi,
I am on my way to make 6 large pencils and holder that works!

What do you think? It was pretty hard making a video for the first time but I tried.

Looks like a fun project. Are you creating some kind of material for a lead that will actually write? Sorry if you said it in the video, I usually don't listen while Wife is watching TV.

welcome to the forum.
if you use wax crayons for the writing part, how will you keep the end sharp and pointed ?
for a realistic pencil, you can actually buy round graphite sticks that artists use.

Hello!
I use crayon beacuse a kid will use them, more fun i think?
I'll sharpen them with a tool that is made for post pointing. I have bulit a holder for the post pointer so its easy and fast to sharpen posts like this.
