Super exciting metal pour experiment! This is from my grad school experience at a large state university–great facility. I loved mold making!
Thanks, Renee, wherever you are, for the video!
This is the unfinished final project from my first semester at woodworking school; the assignment was to make a box of some sort with hinges. My classmates made large boxes for storage–some of them turned out beautifully–but I had run out of wood so I made a series of boxes with various elements (different angles, finishes, cuts, hinges, etc…) to try to cover the things we’d learned over the semester using the scraps I still had and pieces I could scrounge from the trash bins.
I really did learn some new things doing this piece, which was a bit too ‘arty’ for the class, frankly. A picture of it, still unfinished, with the roof (beautiful wood!) is below. I really should finish it and take a few pix before I disassemble it and put lids on the boxes for actual use. (I don’t think the instructor understood my approach, but, whatevs…I got a lot of practice in, which was the point, I thought.)
This is a very brief shot of the weird light and wild life going on just on the other side of the bedroom window where I planted tithonia this summer for privacy. Along with creating a screen of green, the tithonia is hosting a non-stop pollen party!
