How to make a spiral pencil

29 Jun

SpiralpencilTo make a spiraled pencil you will first need the right pencil. Most pencils are six sided, but you might want to find a round pencil to start with.  Its shape will make it easier for beginners to practice on, although the hardness of the wood differs.
After you pick your pencil, you should decide whether or not you want it sharpened. If so, do it before whittling.

How to do it…

Start by cutting 2 lines that go all the way around the pencil in a spiral shape.

Whittling

Now you can start cutting out the shape. Cut all of the wood from the surface of the pencil that lies between the two spiral lines. After that, start cleaning up the spiraled area. Simply scrape with the x-acto knife or sand with a file.

Tada!
