Here is a new piece made of integrated circuit chips and wood. This pencil holder measures about 5 inches at the base and is about 5 inches tall. The opening for your pencils and markers is about 3 ¼ inches. The wall of the holder includes a ring made of integrated circuit chips and other electronic components that are soldered together at the pins that are used to mount them into circuit boards. On this one I used several ePROM chips that have a clear “window” on them that allows you to see the actual silicon wafer and the micro-fine wires that make up the interior of the integrated circuit chip. This is one of my more complicated assemblies with lots of different chips and components built into it. I’ve taken several photos so that you can see the details more clearly. The base is made of Maple and the top ring is made of Cherry. I also put a piece of thin drafting table cover to protect the tips of your pens and pencils. That’s that green patch you can see in one of the photos.
Don’t forget, you can ZOOM any photo for a full-screen image. This will help you see everything in crisp detail.
This will make a striking statement on any desk, especially the desk of anyone in the technology or engineering field. Every one of these will be different and as I build more I will be experimenting with various chips and assembly designs. Feel free to make a request if you have a special interest in a particular type of chip or size.
