    Most #2 pencils are made from incense-cedar slats, obtained mostly from California’s Sierra Nevada mountains.  See the first link below for a demonstration of the manufacturing process.

    Yes, number 2 pencils have always been made out of wood, and basically the pencil consists of a thin rod of graphite that is encased in wood.
