    The MA thread - AKA Everyday Fan Vault Construction for Beginners.

    I had a visit this evening from the computer technician upstairs. The first thing he said when he set eyes on the drawing was "That looks like a Julia set". The Julia set video. IkamusumeFan, CC So we're off down the fractal and infinately repeating geometric shape rabbit...

    I'm there all week except Tuesday, Monday evening is a private wiew thingy, so you'd best check the times on the link. I'm doing meet and greet until 11.30 on Saturday and Sunday, so my workshop will be locked until 12.00 on those days. @Rodpr Thank you. I'm not sure that me staring at...

    That's a shame that you can't pay us a visit this time around. Hopefully I will still be there next time to present something which strictly exceeds its topological dimension to lovers of lignin everywhere.

    That's great, thank you. I hope the knee surgery goes well. I was sent this by my youngest while she was on a school trip to Firenze and Pisa. She has a thing about regular repeating patterns too.

    I've always enjoyed looking at fractals and this is a lovely description. "a fractal is a subset of Euclidean space with a fractal dimension that strictly exceeds its topological dimension." I'm going to try and shoehorn it into a crit and see what reaction I get.

    The MA thread - AKA Everyday Fan Vault Construction for Beginners.

    Life just got a whole lot simpler...... I've been thinking of ways to avoid making loads of small bits and give the spandrels some kind of structural stability, so I thought I'd take a look at all the the rib sized timber in the vault using a bit of drafting film and a pen. So I traced it...

    White marks on oak

    I'm no expert on sanding because I hate doing it, but starting off with 40 grit seems a bit too harsh, as it just eats everything in its way.

    Resaw oak on a bandsaw.

    I dream of a super slick wherry..... but I only have a mahogany canoe to fix up.

    The first drawing is getting very close to being finished. Once that's done I'll start on the layout for the supporting frame and do a quick section or two, so I should be doing wood stuff in November. My plan is to have the framing completed before the end of December. This gives me over 6...

    I try not to think too far ahead of myself, but there's nothing here that I haven't done before in one form or another. There's just a lot of it and it looks complicated because of that, so I just break it down into its component parts and figure if I can make one, I can make them all...

    Handmade: Britain's Best Woodworker

    I'll probably give it a watch, although I noted that ****The King of Wood*** happens to be an architect and not a carpenter, joiner or somesuch woody trade type.

    Dementia and me.

    Dad has been fiddling with the wiring in the light switches. He got really annoyed that someone had been screwing with the switches and that they were hanging off the wall. So I put it all back together and all was right, the screwdrivers have now been hidden. I guess it's better than coming...

    Pete, the drawing is 1:3 and it's really, large model size 56" x 36"", although the testers I talked about earlier are about the same size. It could be used for a really nice canopy for a childs bed though. If I make it any smaller, the ribs become very fiddly and a scale of 1:2 starts getting...
