    I think this is a great project, but for future works like this, I would recommend gluing the pencils (or wood in future pieces) together before cutting them. You will be surprised how much less work it is to get them flat!

    Exactly, when I cut them all then I feel I should glue them first. Anyway, thanks for the compliment and suggestion.
