|Materials Used:||2 mm graphite rod|
|Tools Used:||metal lathe, scalpel blade|
|Approx. Cost:||< 3$|
I saw some pics on the internet of sculptures made out of pencil lead. I decided to start with something simple. Xmas trees seemed just right. I used a scalpel blade to carve into the rotating rod. It's a good idea to rest the blade on the lathe's cutting tool.
