Some Samples of Things Made
Here some things made, most pleasure comes from the planning and making, though these are rather nice to use also.
Some Wooden Serving Dishes:
These are made from a local native timber, Jarrah (Eucalyptus
Marginata). This is the natural colour. The curved pockets
were designed with my Curved Surface plugin for CamBam. Ideal for nibbles before dinner!
A Folding Screen:
This is a classic folding screen that is used to hide a
less-than-sightly corner of a room. The frame is Jarrah
(Eucalytus Marginata) and the carved inserts are made from painted 3 mm
MDF and mounted into slots cut into the frame.
A Rotating Utensile Holder:
I saw a design like this on the web, but with a few adaptions here.
It is intended to hold all those awkward cooking utilensiles used in the
kitchen. Made from Jarrah (Eucalyptus Marginata), the colours are
natural. The challenge for this item was to design it so it
slotted tegether with a little glue and very few screws.
A Clock Face:
The clock mechanism is for others, in this case an inexpensive quartz
movment, but the face is mine. It is about 500 mm diameter and carved
from 19 mm Jarrah (Eucapytus Marginata). The numbers are V-carved and
gold painted. It is stablised by a 19 mm frame on the reverse
side which also contains the movement and support hanger.
A Labrynth for the Hand
While full size labrynths are to walk through, these ones are for the hand, perhaps when blind-folded, to explore the path.
This example is the 11-cycle Chartre labrynth made from
A Mirror Frame
This mirror frame (600 x 500 mm approx) is quite challenging, but it
provides a nice example of an art nouveau pattern with a "super-circle"
(Squircle, power = 4) inner cut out for the mirror. The original
STL file pattern is from
The timber is Tasmainan Oak (E. Delegetensis) that shows a natural
range of tones and the occasional gum vein.
This one is about 800x600 mm and made from Jarrah(E.Marginata). The model was purchased online.

This lazy susan is made from Jarrah (E. Marginata) with a pine coloured inlay. The inlay is an epoxy resin putty.
Made from 3 and 6mm ply, and acrylic
A Small Trunk:
Made from Jarrah (E.Marginata) with an epoxy inlay featuring a branch of the Jarrah tree.
