Those are very cool, Jim. I did the “Search Google for this image” thing just to try and get a bigger pic to look at and the answer popped up, so didn’t get a chance to guess. Oh well, they’re still creative.

That is very cool Jim thanks,
Why couldn’t you have given us these pics first, then maybe I would have guessed it. I thought they had somehow infused the veins of a palm with dye.

I don’t think I have the patience to glue 100 pencils together ;)

I’m just not sure how you would sand it without the entire thing turning black.

I guess you would have to go over it with a giant eraser right before the finish.

It’s always amazing to me how creative folks can be,I never would have thought of using pencils to build with and then turning them,way cool. Thanks for the extra shots Brain Those would have been too easy :) ,I’m with you I wouldn’t have the patience either.
I’ll to watch that video Don thanks for the heads up.

They are beautiful but I never would have guessed what they were made out of. Very interesting, Jim.

Ouch,
Sorry, was I not supposed to answer? Maybe next time you could add something like, if you know the answer please don’t give it so that way it will last a long time!

If you think I was saying something derogatory about you I wasn’t ,so I don’t understand the “ouch” There was no problem at all with you answering, I was not being sarcastic.

Merry Christmas
