Just thought I would make a pencil holder out of a paper coffee cup. The base is Ash and the cup and base are covered in polymer resin so it will last awhile. I let the resin drip down the side to make it have a more interesting wet look

The engineered-wood shaped in a section of a cone shows dynamic geometry, especially with such thin material. I particularly like the artistic finish with its waterfall nature. That is the kind of advanced zen-like craftsmanship to which I aspire.

Looks great, and you've taken recycling to a whole new level.
