Designing a Pencil Holder

My first project in openSCAD was design this Pencil Holder just to really learn the properties of openSCAD and some of the functions that are available to use such as the rotate_extrude and linear_extrude.

 I used several different shapes such as circles and squares for the all the structure. I also developed a cup like structure with the same design as the pencil holder in which I add a hollowed out cylinder using the difference function along with to handle piece on both side. I have not printed this design out yet. My sources were http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUoBw1WR1S0 and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22iaz5xDzlM.

At the moment, I am working on another project in openSCAD, and have been playing with a Xbox Kinect to model real life objects, and if any one has few ideas or projects that can been done in openSCAD, I would be greatly interest in trying to do them. I can print your on --------> http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:195582
