Patient. Pshaw!


A closer looks shows that each of the pencils above have a letter of the alphabet carved into the lead.  A project that took artist Dalton Ghetti, 2 1/2 years to complete.  A hobby of his in which he uses only a sewing needle, a razor blade and a number 2 pencil.  He does it all without a magnifying glass.

I was most impressed with his project in which he transformed the lead of a pencil into a 23 link chain.



and I thought I was a patient person.  More of his work:
