This is a bowl that i turned for my wife. The wood bank was created by super gluing a LOT of colored pencils together. Gluing all of the pencils together was extremely messy and took me a lot longer than i thought it would. It was a fun project once it was a solid block. Turning it was kind of a pain. This dulled my lathe knives so much and often i had to resharpen them about 6 times before i had it turned to the shape i wanted.
Ultimately it was a fun project and my wife absolutely loves it. But I will not be making another one.

Sure is nice!

I bet you are going to make more! Use full pencils with rubber bands for clamps and then cut the blanks for turning after the glue has cured.

I will want to see them!

Looks OK but what is going to happen when your kids find all their “Derwents” have gone missing!
I hope you have some CA glue left over …you may need it on yourself tee hee
