It’s always good to reflect on a project after it’s completed and see what could have been done better. Even though this project turned out great Frank took the time to acknowledge areas for improvement. It was also interesting to see his CNC used with a flush trim bit.

A camper with style. The tiny house movement and custom small spaces movement never fails to introduce interesting spaces. I’d love to take this wagon camping. It’s got a wood stove too! If you’re interested in alternative living spaces be sure to subscribe to Kirsten. She’s got hundreds of great documentary style videos like this.

Jeff recently completed his Moroubian tool cabinet and it turned out great. Actually, it turned out 100% according to his vision in the SketchUp file. Jeff is also great at projecting his thoughts to written words. Click here to go to his article and be sure to venture around his website for a bit. You won’t be disappointed.

The Table Turner

An interesting gadget to turn with the tablesaw or the router. I haven’t seen much about this product but have seen similar homemade jigs. Makes me wonder which came first; the chicken or the egg?

Not only is the finished stool interesting but the stump itself is interesting. Some pieces of wood tell YOU what the project will be. I think I’ll be looking for odd-shaped stumps next time I walk through the woods.

Filming in Russia

I’ve seen a few videos making these small dolls. It’s always a delicate process that is knocked out sooooo fast due to experience and volume of product. This is no exception. The people turning these pieces look like they could make them with their eyes closed. Unique turning tools and efficient movements. Also, check out the dust collection spider at 4:58! I wonder how many fittings were needed to put that together hahaha.

While the audio track used for this video may not be for everyone you should still check out the video. Sharon describes it best in the video description by saying “Stumps project engage with the transition of natural figures into design projects via technology.”
