I give you the next step(s) in my Monolith Remote project – the monolith remote back board! It took – once again – longer than anticipated, but I managed to get part 2 of this massive project out of the way. Frankly, I did not expect this to yield enough… Continue Reading Monolith Remotes – Back Board (Part 2)
I have a long-standing fascination with “artifacts”, that is cool props from movies or TV that I would like to own. Some are plain cool, others resonate with me in some way. And this is what the monolith remotes from the most recent season of Marvel’s Agents of Shield did.… Continue Reading Monolith Remotes (Part 1)
Magic is dangerous, and I won’t let a stray wand shot give me away – even though it was not even really me who demanded the duel. So I decided to make something to hold all my present and future wands using ShadowFoam to contain their magic. So lean back… Continue Reading Wand Box with the Help of ShadowFoam
Late for Christmas (as is on brand) but still a viable decoration option, I give you the giant porch candles! They replaced the Death of Rats as our front porch decoration this Christmas. I especially like how those wax drippings came out. And on top of it all, these porch… Continue Reading Giant Porch Candles

Or is that just me? It was years ago when I had some things laser cut. Among… Continue Reading Spectral Dagger – Lights up!
The weirdest things can happen to cans left too long on the shelf. Some might even grow wooden tentacles, which is, bar the real thing, the best kind to have – or to make! As promised, this is the second iteration of the Monster-in-a-Can-Theme. Who knows, maybe more will come.… Continue Reading Wooden Tentacles – The second Monster-in-a-Can!
When you cannot get the beauty sleep you need in your workshop (or a bedroom for that matter), help is not far. Grab a bunch of marbles, a slice of wood and some hot glue, and make a Marble Dream Catcher! Check out the video and let me know what… Continue Reading Marble Dream Catcher – Repell Bad Vibes!
I started this project years ago and finally got around to finishing it. These garden snakes can be made from scraps or cheap slats, and designed in a number of ways to fit whatever you want to see worm its way through your garden or porch. Check them out and… Continue Reading Garden Snakes – Segmented Garden Decoration
You probably know that I like working with OSB because it looks rather interesting and is not that bad to turn on the lathe either. So I felt inspired to create gas giants from it because as was pointed out to me, turned OSB painted the right way looks the… Continue Reading OSB Solar System – Turned Gas Giants
