     While shopping in my local Dollar Tree store this week, I noticed these spirograph-like party favors that had some unusual gears in them.  I thought I'd do a quick post here just to give folks a heads-up.

      The gears come in two sizes and you get four in each pack.  They looked very naturalistic to me, like something an Elf might carve or create.  I'm not sure what I will use these for, but thought they'd be a good thing to have tucked away for just the right project.  I think they'd look really cool painted up like wood. I know some of you could probably make use of them for bases, or part of a  scenic base.

     As I look at them, I also realize they might also serve as machinery for some sort of alien or other weird tech.IMG_6612.jpg

Interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

Lol...I bought them without any idea of what I was going to do with them; but since I posted the picture of them, I've found myself starting to plan a whole elf woodworker building with various half finished wood sculptures and fancy decorations, and lumber piled about...just so I can include these gears in a pile in a corner somewhere. :)

An "organic saw mill"

 

When I read your post I though, Gears and tool that are grown then altered to fit the needs. The opposite being forged metal, liken to factory assembly lines.
