Who are we?
What do we do?
We, at Carved, use our fast and gentle hands to guide common tools to pull off a wonderful, modern-style pencil. With our precision derived from our dedication to perfection, every cut and mark is flawless, making a homemade pencil into a unique writing utensil that will make your jaw drop.
How do we make them?
At Carved, we use a drill press at a low angle to give our creators open access to all surfaces of the pencil. We begin with a basic pencil. It is attached to the drill press and spun at a low speed. We then press a single blade of a pair of scissors against the surface, scraping off all of the paint. Next, we remove any excess paint with coarse, low grit sandpaper. We then adjust the speed to make the pencil spin faster. Different tools can be pressed against the pencil to create ridges, indents, and/or divots. After we finish designing the pencil, we press low grit sandpaper against the pencil to smooth out the rougher edges. After this, we progressively use higher-grit sheets of sandpaper to give the pencil a smooth finish. We then press a sharp blade against the end of the pencil, tapering it if a ball end is desired, or cutting straight through to create a supportive base. The pencil is then removed from the press and prepared for sale. This process, start to finish, takes about 10 minutes.
