Many of my pieces are constructed totally out of popsicle sticks and Elmer's glue. My lamps and legged tables have either metal conduit or 1/4" rod for wire concealment or stability respectfully.<P> All pieces containing color, the sticks are hand stained prior to construction. I pride myself in trying to never cut sticks to conform to shape(s) for the challenge is to erect the piece out of the manufactured sizes and shapes. I do not draw or sketch my ideas, I see them in my mind's eye and it is from that snapshot I begin. </font></B><P> </td> </tr> </table></CENTER> </td> <td valign=top> <P><img src="http://www.riffstick.net/riffstick/santiago.jpg"WIDTH="279" HEIGHT="400"><BR> <center><font size=1 font color=#FFFFFF><B>Photo by Steven Tassopolous<P> <center><font size=3 font color=#FFFFFF><B>The Santiago Lamp</font><P> </td> </tr> </table></center><P> <img src="http://www.riffstick.net/riffstick/lrgbox.jpg"WIDTH="400" HEIGHT="290"><BR> <center><font size=1 font color=#FFFFFF><B>Photo by Steven Tassopolous<P> <center><font size=3 font color=#FFFFFF><B>Large Four Compartment Box</font></B><P>&nbsp;<P> </td></CENTER> <img src="http://www.riffstick.net/riffstick/torcheremee.jpg"WIDTH="350" HEIGHT="550"><BR><P> <center><font size=1 font color=#FFFFFF><B><P> <center><font size=3 font color=#FFFFFF><B>One of two 7 foot tall Giraffe Leg Torcheres</B><P>&nbsp;<P> <img src="http://www.riffstick.net/riffstick/tree1.JPG"WIDTH="400" HEIGHT="550"><BR> <center><font size=1 font color=#FFFFFF><B>Photo by David Hrobowski<P> <center><font size=3 font color=#FFFFFF><B>Riffstick Christmas Tree 2011</font></B><P>&nbsp;<P> <img src="http://www.riffstick.net/riffstick/me in flowers.jpg"WIDTH="600" HEIGHT="350"><BR> <center><font size=1 font color=#FFFFFF><B>Photo by Steven Tassopolous<P> <center><font size=3 font color=#FFFFFF>Thank You, David</font></B><P> </td> </tr> </table></center></center> <br> <FONT SIZE=5 COLOR=#CC0000> <B><CENTER><P>"We are all wired differently but within the infinite diverse, there is sameness"<FONT SIZE=2>&nbsp;-&nbsp;&nbsp;David Hrobowski</CENTER></B><P>&nbsp;<P> </FONT></CENTER> <P> </td> </tr> </table></CENTER> <CENTER><table border=0 cellpadding=5 cellspacing=0 width=580> <center><tr> <td valign=top> <center><font size=2 font color=#FFFFFF><B> <center><font size=2 font color=#FFFFFF><B><A HREF="http://www.designswan.com/archives/incredible-wooden-chip-artwork-by-sergey-bobkov.html">Sergey Bobkov</A><P> <center><font size=2 font color=#FFFFFF><B><A HREF="http://www.chipaddington.com/art/PopsicleStickMotorcycle.html">Chip Addington</A><P> Francisco Vallejo<P> <center><font size=2 font color=#FFFFFF><B><A HREF="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RmbsDU3SNc">Brad Griffith</A><P> <center><font size=2 font color=#FFFFFF><B><A HREF="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WodL_QiAqEw">Stephen Guman</A><P> <center><font size=2 font color=#FFFFFF><B>Patric Acton's Matchstick Marvels<P> <center><font size=2 font color=#FFFFFF><B><A HREF="http://www.toothpickart.com/">Steven J.
