Pencil Sphere

January 2003

A sphere made from pencils super glued together. The pencils are in four alignments, as you would get on a caltrop or the molecular structure of diamond. I originally tried out this structure with straws, seeing the holes for each rod were hexagonal it seemed obvious to use pencils. after enough pencils were stuck together a disk sander was used to get it spherical. It looked more interesting before I sanded it, though the pencils left a beautiful rainbow on the disk sander.
