Day 27: Pencil shelf

Today I made a shelf from coloured pencils by glueing them together. I was suprised at how strong it was using two layers of pencils.

The shelf brackets are made by cutting a single pencil case into two parts and glueing together. The sliding doors hide the screws.

This is part of a 30 day Speed Creating project I am doing. Outcomes were exhibited at the Anti – Design Festival between 18th-21st September, Mestakes and manifestos, curated by Daniel Charny, Londonewcastle gallery, 28 Redchurch St, London.
You can get updates on my future work on RSS, Twitter and Facebook.

  1. Update: bought the pencil case boxes in 99p store, two for £1.98! Now hunting down cheapest coloured pencils and epoxy glue…

  2. Good point about the points. Looks lovely, but you wouldn’t want to run your hand along it as you browsed.

  3. I’d love to see a “How-To” on that! (I’m not sure how you glued them together so perfectly)

    Just as great as the “old-skateboard-wardrobe”, easy to recreate but still unique.
