A while ago I saw this great instructable https://www.instructables.com/id/Mad-Chopstick-Burr/ on how to make a hexastix which I'm pretty sure was invented by this George Hart who called his sculpture "72 pencils": http://www.georgehart.com/sculpture/pencils.html
Here is my version (which is, as of this writing, for sale on Etsy, under Geoburst) made into a pretty detailed video. I would love to see a lot of people make these into christmas ornaments and stuff.
There are 91 sticks of each colour: Blue, Green, Deep Red, and Deep Brown (Black in dim light).
You can find out more about me and what I make on http://geoburst.ca
