@nickG – Gravity baby, our very best friend. For without it, when birds died, they would stay up in the the air and then what would we do?

Very cool!! But to think how much longer a pencil you could have fit if they hadn’t come pre-sharpened!

That is cool. What kind of glue did you use? I guess you had to sand the finish off of the sides you glue.

Nope, no sanding, no finishing. I used CA (crazy glue) from the dollar store, it held like mad. Still pulling my fingers apart.
