Selenite is an interesting material to work with. Tea Light holders are interesting things to make. And ancient evils are better left bound and banished in whatever infernal dimension they dwell. Combining all those three good things into something arguably okay, I give you the Selenite Tea Light Holder! My… Continue Reading Selenite Tea Light Holder – Banish Ancient Evils in Style
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
I give you an inside-out turning. Something that incorporates blue amber for no reason other than that it is interesting. This is this year’s Christmas ornament. This also has a Wand in it. And that cult. That mildly inconvenient cult. And if that wasn’t enough, I really think you should… Continue Reading Blue Amber Ornament Inside-Out Turning
Sometimes you have an idea stuck in your head. One of those was turning things from OSB, and after some moderate success with tea light holders (available in my Etsy shop, see below), I just had to make a wand. And while “wand from OSB” sounds like an interesting idea,… Continue Reading Wand from OSB, Steady Rest and Dowel Maker
If you are familiar with the Witcher games and books, you might have come across the card game Gwent. It features prominently in The Witcher 3 and has been given a game on its own as well. I found a set of cards online, so that is not the project.… Continue Reading Minimalist Gwent Board and a Box
The Pythagorean Goblet, big brother to the more infamous Pythagorean Cup (but really the same thing) is an item that both demonstrated the siphon effect as well as the user’s propensity for practical jokes. Though frankly, I doubt it would actually be effective as one because the concept is pretty… Continue Reading Pythagorean Goblet – Woodturning a Practical Joke
I know it looks like I made another magic wand, but with good reason. I use it to showcase a very simple technique that you can use to animate things, i.e. make them move. And even better, you do not need microcontrollers, servos or electricity for it – springs and string are all that is required. You can combine that with more high-tech ideas, but it is a good starting point for Halloween costumes and decoration.
Sharing this video would mean the world to me, and I greatly appreciate you supporting me this way. If you are in Instructables, you can check out the ‘ible for this project there, and maybe find answers to questions you did not even have yet (I would appreciate you liking it and following me there, too!). Thanks for watching, and remember to be Inspired!Continue Reading Animate a Cthulhu-Wand
If you ever read the Tintin story “Destination Moon”, chances are that the iconic rocket design with its slender curves and the bright colors stuck in your mind just like it did for me. When it was time to make a LED-based project for a challenge (hosted by HolzwurmTom), I… Continue Reading Tintin Rocket Lamp – Fly me to the Moon!
I wanted to clock some lathe practice while making a Christmas ornament. The Balance Tree is the result of that paired with my desire to use different wood species to make things look more interesting as well as adding a hopefully unexpected twist to it. Using springs, even though it is winter! Enjoy, and remember to be Inspired!
