Your pencil could be your most important carving tool. As you are planning your next wood carving project, start with a pencil. Draw a line down the center to make sure both sides of your design are balanced and sketch out your design first before making the first cut. It's much easier to erase a pencil mark versus trying to correct a wrong cut. Make sure you’re using a sharp pencil for a precise line; check out our Power House® Electric Pencil Sharpener. A little planning and pencil work can go a long way!
