Pick Up Your Pencils, Begin by Harriete Estel Berman

This is the center Stanine at about 9', early summer 2010. At this point it is 12vfeet in height.

In this photo there was three more feet to go on this stanine. It takes about 15 minutes for each row of pencils.

So you can see this takes an enormous amount of time. So close to being done, yet still so far to go!

When the stanines are done, I need to work out the structural elements. I have the bottom and top figured out. I started working on them simultaneous with the pencils.
No wonder this has taken so long! I vacillate between exuberance and feeling overwhelmed at the effort and time involved.
