These are a few examples of my latest craze. It is basically a 3d weave of cocktail sticks—just lots of them. I have made them from chopsticks and skewers as well, but have given those as presents and don't have any pictures.
Sticks of the same colour are all parallel to each other, and at a fixed angle to all other colours. I am not sure if I don't prefer the nature colour
This angle shows how each stick (that is pointed at the camera) is surrounded by a triangle of three others. And here is the latest work in progress with drinking straws. It still needs straightening up and gluing—any clues on the best glue to use would really be appreciated. :-)
