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. – shirlock homes Oct 22 '11 at 12:00
  • These pencils also work great for opening beer bottles. Y'know... After you're done measuring, cutting, etc. – Shog9 Oct 22 '11 at 17:44
  • @Shog9 opening a beer with a pencil? Pics/links or it didn't happen. – Kate Gregory Dec 5 '11 at 18:16

  • @Shog9 Spectacular. Are you an engineer? If not, I might declare you an honourary one – Kate Gregory Dec 8 '11 at 3:43
  • No engineering background whatsoever, @Kate - but I'll certainly drink to honor, deserved or otherwise ;-) – Shog9 Dec 8 '11 at 3:48
