Remember the post I made using the pencils all stacked together? This piece is similar in the way I put them together - take a look:

This is really a cool design. I love the quote and the
old piece the quote fits inside. You are so talented.

My Grandpa, a Sweded from the old country, was a Master Carpenter (used this kind of ruler) and always carried a pocket watch (real gold one). This brings floods of memories of that dear man.
Thanks again for sharing your great art.
