I had this small piece of left over project material that was made of colored pencils encased in the bar top epoxy resin. I have been trying to figure out what to do with it, and then i purchased a set of Carbide lathe tools and decided to make a bowl. It is finished with 4 coats of rattle can gloss lacquer. As always critiques are welcome to expand my knowledge.

Thanks, pottz got them after the back to school rush at a dollar store, so it was not that bad.

Pretty sure the epoxy would be the major cost here :)

I like that kind of project…although many pencils hurt.
