So I made up these DIY pencils:

look our diy pencils are awesome

They look great AND I have oodles of them. If you'd like to give these away, such as at a local hardware store or leaving them at a Habitat ReStore counter, that's cool. (Preferably, bring a small adorable child with you -- apparently, this makes the pencils move like hotcakes.) Just email me at aarthi[at]stackexchange.com with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your home address
  • How many pencils you want
  • Where you're thinking about leaving/giving away the pencils.

That's it! I'm happy to send these out to wherever they need to go.

    cool Idea! I'd pass out a bunch to my buddies at the lumber yard, hardware store, box stores and coffee stop. These are something builders and DIYer's love. Simple, cheap and effective. Good Call Aarhti. Oct 22, 2011 at 12:00
  • These pencils also work great for opening beer bottles. Y'know... After you're done measuring, cutting, etc.

  • @Shog9 Spectacular. Are you an engineer? If not, I might declare you an honourary one Dec 8, 2011 at 3:43
  • No engineering background whatsoever, @Kate - but I'll certainly drink to honor, deserved or otherwise ;-)
