A sharp pencil is a must for accurate work, but having a pencil sharpener permanently mounted in one place isn’t always ideal. The further away I am from my pencil sharpener, the less likely I am to use it, until my pencil is really dull.

I removed my pencil sharpener from its permanent location on the wall and mounted it to a scrap of wood. Now I just bring it along to wherever I’m working and clamp it in place.

    I did something similar. I bought a motor home, attached the pencil sharpener to one of the cabinets in the kitchenette section… And now I have a portable pencil sharpener!
