How to Make a PencilClose-Up of Pencil
An Incense-cedar block is
cut into uniform slats.

The bottom of the sandwich is a
slat of wood about seven inches long,
one-fourth inch thick and eight
pencils wide.

The slat goes through a milling machine
that makes eight grooves half as deep
as the lead is thick.

Two slats are glued together, encasing
graphite writing cores in a "sandwich."

Individual pencils are cut from the
sandwich, and are smoothed,
finished, and capped with erasers.
