Workshop Sketch Pencil in Wild Olivewood

The Pencil:
You’ll find numerous uses around the house and shop for this heavy duty, practical and attractive mechanical pencil. The 5.6mm (nearly 1/4″ dia.) lead will never break. The pencil includes a precision, mechanism has an integrated sharpener in the cap. Includes an 80mm length of lead. Graphite and “Magic Lead” colored lead refills are available separately. Lead sharpener unscrews from cap for precision sharpening in hand.

The Species:
Olive is sometimes figured with curly or wavy grain, burl, or wild grain.  Because of the fruit’s economic importance, trees aren’t felled for lumber and its scarcity makes it valuable for working. What makes this hardwood so unique is the extraordinary grain pattern of each individual piece, as well as the distinctive and inviting fragrance that it gives off. It even becomes darker, richer,  and more beautiful in color as it ages! Occasionally available from wild trees, like this lumber.

Hardware Finish:
Chrome

The Process:
The hand selected materials for this item were first cut and drilled, then turned on a lathe by me, Jack. Sanding is completed through several grits until the piece is smooth to the touch. Next, up to 10 finish coats of cyanoacrolate (”CA” Superglue) are applied by hand, one at a time. The finish is buffed with a series of micromesh pads, then shined with polishing compound until the surface has a glass-like appearance. A final rub on the buffing wheel adds depth and final clarity.

This method, the most difficult and intensive technique, provides your purchase with the most durable exterior possible, and a beautifully reflective surface that resists the elements and will last for many years.

Includes Pencil Box & 5.6mm "Lead" Refill
