This is the pencil I use when I’m working with really big numbers…like 5. Seriously, my daughter need a pole that will have some type of flag attached to it so I took a piece of 2×4 and ripped it in half. I then knocked of the corners at the TS which made octagonal. After some sanding she and my wife decorated it to look like a pencil. Not half bad if I say so myself. It was fun to do a project that didn’t involve hours of planning.

Thanks for looking

But you couldn’t tell by the magnitude of my mistakes!!!
