Re: What do you make? Show us your stuff...

Prototype nano stereo amplifier.

A tiny stereo amplifier that drives normal 8ohm speakers to a pleasing volume using ONLY an android phone as a power source. Uses about 9% battery per hour and produces rather satisfying tones. Could be (and will be) attached to non-mobile power supply for desktop use.

Sure its ugly...but...this was just a proof of concept!!!

Re: What do you make? Show us your stuff...

I have done this one with oil, it took weeks to dry because of the amount of paint layers.

Yes, you brush the paint on the piece of furniture, wait a couple of minutes and wipe it off with a wet cloth. Add more or sand it off as it goes according of your taste.

I don't.

But that's why I love abstract so much. Each individual gets a different impression and feeling of it. It's not a there you go, here's a tree, it's emotionally deeper.

Re: What do you make? Show us your stuff...

Re-purposed chisel box...now for knitting tools!

Inspired by my mother and a box full of scrap wood.
The basswood pocket on the left completes the enclosure opposite on the right so small bits won't be lost. The lever arm on the right is held closed by the pins on the left side of the lid keeping the needles in place (the flowers on the lever arm act as wedge locks when the box is closed).
The lever arm swings on a waxed dowel set into the box's bottom: no metal used. The original chisel spaces in the middle right are perfect for grouping needle sets sized from #0 through #7.

Lovely box. Maybe you could stick some felt material on the inside so your bits & pieces won't rattle around if you carry it somewhere.
