    I've been messing around with my 3d printer making a little pen holder modeled after the wheels on my car :cool: Still just draft prints as I prototype it but you get the idea.

    fantastic work. Wood working and carpentry i find are miles apart as i'm learning lately. That's a gorgeous shop as well. Can you explain how you cut out all the small pieces; mitre saw, band saw...?

    Band saw
    I printed out the pic using rasterbator and taped each piece to the wood. Cut it out from there

    Yea he got a CNC a couple years ago, doesn’t use it near as much as he should. Took the map of Keji into both photoshop and illustrator to break it down into 3 different SVG cut files for the outline, lakes/rivers, and the peg holes (a loose representation of the backcountry camping trail).

    He cut the lakes and rivers first and filled with blue tinted epoxy and then went back over for the peg holes.

    There were a few cut errors so he is going to redo it after the holidays but I think it still turned out pretty good!

    You guys are so talented :eek:
    My father and brother are amazing woodworkers and I am jealous of their skills, I am a woodbutcher and really prefer to work with metal and motors.
    I really want a CNC but I want a Plasma CNC

    Ok, RC folks. Since I moved to Seattle about 4.5 years ago, I've mostly given up on my woodworking hobby. My workspace is really small now and I just didn't prioritize it. Maybe it's a new year's resolution but I've realised recently how much I really miss it. So... looking for some ideas on small projects to tackle, mostly with hand tools. I am going to force myself to learn some new skills in this area and embrace "the small".

    For reference, this is the workspace:

    IMG_0143.jpg

    So, part of the problem right now, if it isn't obvious, is that my workbench is also currently my WFH space. The woodworking workspace is also currently my ski workspace (waxing, sharpening, etc).

    I'm not completely foreign to smaller projects. 2 examples - a mirror I built in a woodworking course I took and a crib board I built on my own - plans came from a Canadian Woodworking magazine. The crib board was one of the funnest/most rewarding projects I've tackled. I definitely used power tools on that and can't imagine doing that without a drill press at the very least.

    IMG_0151.jpg

    Just to finish off, some other projects I've tackled. There are actually 2 nightstands (sorry for the mess?) that were built about 5 years apart. The armoire was built when my son was born as the room he was in didn't have a closet.

    And for a full idea of space, this is the rest of the garage - it’s pretty full in here! And now also being used for virtual bike rides as well.

    I'm not skilled enough for wood... electronics and plastic are more my style. Have this thing mostly sorted out. Have to solder the electronics to a board and then print a final copy of the enclosure.

    It's a "Useless box" .. just a toy. Here's me messing with an earlier prototype. I'll post a video when it's all done
