Woodworker Andy Phillip shows off a cool art piece he created using a number of sharpened colored pencils arranged inside block of resin he polished into a sphere. It’s a wonderfully satisfying video, and we’re particularly impressed that he didn’t accidentally shave down any of the pencil tips on his lathe.
This mind-bending creation is a full color, 3D-printed spherical object that’s been layered with a full-color 360° panoramic image. If you don’t have a full color 3D printer handy, there are a couple of options for these on the market including Scandy Spheres and the less expensive Snapspheres.
This beautifully-crafted desktop sculpture features a precision laser-etched map of the Milky Way, using data captured by the ESA’s Gaia mission. Its 5068 stars look particularly stellar when set on the LED-illuminated base, which projects its light into the heart of our galaxy. Measures 3″ in diameter, and runs on AAA batteries.
