36 Pencil bowl

While the $67 price for this may be too high, the concept is a good one. Designer Michiel Cornelissen has designed a laser sintered polyamide (I think that means plastic?) connector that transforms 36 regular pencils into a bowl. I love the concept of using everyday objects in a new way. I'd love to see a GRM reader figure out an inexpensive DIY for this one.

36 Pencil Bowl available from www.michielcornelissen.com for $67.

Please excuse me while I pay some bills...
