Anybody know how to get rid of Prjctmangr comment? I can't seem to find an email address for this junk.
Timeless beauty! Is it a limited edition? $ ?
TTo CW ownes, The cup is just glued to the base with the resone. Thanks Bill
Excellent use of curvilinear form and gravitational selectivity to hold your carbon-centered sharp-pointy sticks! 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.
Is the cup glued or screwed to the base?
I tried a very similar project once, though being Canadian it was a Tim's cup. Instead of the extravagance of a wooden base I just kept it half full of coffee (the bottom half) for stability. I gave up on it when scraping the mold off the pencils became an inconvenience.
good i Tim!
I particularly like the asymmetrical aspect. Setting the cup slight off center from the base was brilliant! I can't wait to see more of your work!
Where can I find the plans for this? hahaha :-)
Looks great, and you've taken recycling to a whole new level.
