#1

Just a rundown of my latest projects. Throw questions at me if ya like!

And a sneak peek at the ongoing wall project of the month.

Happy making!


#2

Lovin’ the Orrery!


#3

Well those are just incredible! Is that veneers on clear acrylic for the wall map? :grinning:


#4

Yup. Exactly ! :grinning:


#5

Love it all!! It’s like which is your favorite child…


#6

oops. forgot one “child”.


#7

I love them all, but especially the box. It took me a minute to see the finger joints. At first I just thought that was decorative. Fantastic job!


#8

I’ve been wanting to make that kind of lamp shade, but haven’t gotten around to working out a design. Did you find the plans online, or roll your own?


#9

In the photos the finger joints look loose, in person they are not. The sanding has just highlighted the etching lines a bit unevenly. Took me a bit to get used to the look but in the end I love it.


#10

A combination. I found similar plans on Thingiverse and modified. I must admit construction was complex and not without cursing.


#11

The clock is a Clayton Boyer design. I send all credit thatta way! :slightly_smiling_face:

Correction!! The Orrery is based on a Boyer design. The Clock Is a Brian Law design!!!


#12

Also the copper and lapis inlay was a new technique for me. I’d never realized how that process is done before. Omg. I’m still vibrating from all that sanding! But boy is the result worth it.


#13

Wow… love the light shades. What material did you use for it?.. Did you make the pattern or find one to work off.


#14

Clayton’s clock designs are great - I’ve got most of one built in my “normal” wood shop and plans for a few others to build at some point…


#15

I can’t choose a favorite … these are all phenomenal! Very, very, VERY nice!


#16

Thanks! Found a thingiverse pattern to modify then used proofgrade cherry( to match my kitchen) and red and grey acrylic from inventables for the ribs.


#17

just WOW :sunglasses::glowforge:


#18

Those are fantastic. I don’t think you are a first timer with results like that. Thanks for sharing. :grinning:


#19

These are all truly amazing. The light shades are #1 on my list of likes.


#20

If I may, where did you learn about the inlay technique(s)? I’ve been banging my head against inlays for a while now…
