Colored Pencil Growth Chart

I wanted a growth chart ruler to measure my daughter as she grows up. I was going to make one out of walnut and maple but then I decided to use colored pencils and make a truly one of a kind growth chart ruler that will become a family heirloom and hopefully be passed down for generations to come! This growth chart is 7 feet long and 6 inches wide and just over an inch thick.

It takes approximately 100 colored pencils cut into 1 inch long bits to make up a 6 inch by 6 inch square. This has 1400 pencils in it that are cut into 5 pieces each making that about 7000 pencil bits in total! This turned out better than I could have ever imagined.
