Samples of Things Made
Here some things made, most pleasure
comes from the planning and making, though these are rather nice to use
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
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 Jarrah
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
timber is Tasmanian Oak (E. Delegetensis) that shows a natural range of
tones and the occasional gum vein.

that trip the hammers it is rotates. The notes are from a
