Made a desk ornament for a local podcast crowd whose logo looks like this:


Nothing terribly special (my newfound respect for hot melt glue blocks in the lathe notwithstanding), but I thought it came out nice and they liked it.

Yes John, I'm just getting these panels finished, then laquered, then installed. Should be a few more days, weather permitting.

Not entirely recent but the last thing I think I finished! It's a plant propogator for growing cuttings. Design creep is in full effect, it started as a square frame, now its round with a bearing so it spins like a lazy susan!



Made of elm and finished with wax

The Mrs has just acquired new hearing aids that sit in a charger overnight. She didn’t like it that the ear buds were exposed to the air overnight, and there is a pair of pulsing LEDs which are like a lighthouse in a dark room.

knocked up this little charging station with a closable lid. Keeps them clean, and no lights shining in the room.

made from an offcut of mahogany With elephant Mandela etched into the front.

Very nice Phil, just check they don’t overheat whilst charging though. Ian
Thanks Ian, I did check after a few hours charging as I had that concern, but charger and aids were still cold. It’s wireless charging, not sure if that makes any difference to heat production.

I am currently making these acoustic panels for my studio. The mdf will be primed and painted to fit the colour scheme. 100mm RW3 rockwool covered in fabric forms the backing of these panels and they are hung in an array from the ceiling @ 12 degree angles. The effect is that they diffuse any flutter echo that exists between the floor and the ceiling

They look simple to make, are they effective?

F.
That's the thing. I don't know :p

Made these as per the instructions on the YouTube channel, Pask Makes. My dining table converted workbench has no dog holes for me to try these on. Need to get around to making a few holes just to try these out.

But in the channel, I saw it was very effective. Not as durable or heavy duty as the forged ones, of course, but good enough for majority of tasks apparently.

interesting, how did you calculate the hole sizes? as in the perforation percentage? and why did you use MDF out of interest? say instead of plywood or solid wood slats?
