Default Pensil Pics, lets show 'em!

I'm into seeing pictures of people's setups almost as much as doing stuff myself

I've seen only a few pics of Pensil's in the wild and would love to see more pics. I think the most famous ones are the one's from Grahams:

Post pics of your Pensil's or one's you've seen and post links if you have them

Actually theses are not so "hefty" in the sense of mass / weight, but certainly stiff from the interlocked bracing (just a bit of a pain to adjust stuffing - of course I went overboard on screws in the removable back panel - something like 24-26?). Very nice sounding and pretty darned easy build - well I guess that depends on how silly you get with the bracing and finishing.

Still raw at the moment - the cue for veneering and finishing is now about 4 pairs deep, and with some home renos mandated by SWPTB (she who pays the bills) it'll likely be several weeks yet before I get to these,

The design of Pensil 10.2 cabinet is much deeper than the old Pensil 10's cabinet as Alpair 10.2 pushes more air than Alpair 10.

Wow those are beautiful! Do you have any larger pics? Do you have any SuperPensil12 pics next to one of the other ones, for size comparison. Bigger is better in my house
