Stained glass window lamp

This was inspired by an existing project by pohhoushun from instructibles. I liked the idea, but wanted to make the light up section to look more like a real stained glass window, so I printed out the stained glass pattern on overhead projector paper so when light shines through it, it looks like a mini stained glass window.

The window  is based on St Mary’s church in Cheltenham, UK, although I had to change a few bits to make it work.

Lit up!

There’s also a flower of life version using the same idea in the gallery:

Ban Hammer

One of those projects that exists just because it could- a Ban Hammer!

I have a friend who is a game master for an online game and must frequently dispense administrative judgement on swearing 14 year olds, this hammer will assist her in her quest:

Smite the wicket, chastise the unjust, open wallnuts

The artwork was by Mina Liang, if you like her style and like her doodling, she does commissions, so poke her with a stick.

Iris jewellery boxes

These were based on an existing project by Ernesto_realize from instructibles, so most of the credit goes to him! I just fancied them up a bit :-) If you want to make your own, the files are on his indestructible and are really easy to follow.

Glow in the dark door sign

At nighttime, I can never figure out which door is my flat, so I made a glow in the dark thing. It doesn’t work very well and looks crappy up close, but it’s the first time I’ve used this glow in the dark stuff!

Money Stash keyring

So my friend needed somewhere to store medical records in case she goes to hospital, but didn’t really like the standard stainless steel medi-alter bracelets and asked me to make something fancier. A load of lasering and about 7 prototypes later, here’s what I came up with:

Tropies for OnlineHelden.de

The company I used to work for needed some tropies for a an award ceremony and recruited me to make some for them :-)

They’re laser cut birch, sanded super smooth and finished with beeswax.

The bases are multiplex and were a right puzzle to figure out how to join to the tops- it took me, 2 professional carpenters, 3 different power tools and actual spilt blood to make the slot!
