Laptop holdy thing.

Ran out of space on my desk to store my laptop so rather than tidy up I built it a little cubby hole.

You can speed up the process with a pair of MC Hammers.

Breaking glass at the hackspace.
 
Special offer at the Space this week. Every drink comes with a free glass. (If you are lucky)
We built up a jig to scratch a line round the bottle. Then poured boiling water over then, then cold, then hot, the pop the top drops off.
We had a couple of learning experiences. More than one turn on the scratcher ends up with a few more cracks than expected. Tapping it with an Allen key just makes a big mess on the floor. Fun though.

More bad news about Diesel cars and pollution. This time it's about a new type of pollution that we did not even measure before.
( Cool that it's the Uni where I work doing some of this as well. )
Our atmospheric chemists have detected dangerously high levels of new ‘hidden’ emissions from diesel engines.

It may not win any awards but it seems to work! I now have a curved in both directions plane. Quite chuffed so far. Let's see if it holds together long enough for me to finish my bench stool.
Should probably look up how to harden steel as well or I'll be spending a lot more time at the sharpening stones.
Now I have made one though I know all the bits it did wrong and as I have another 30cm or so of steel I might make some more. Quite enjoyable.

It's the old school version of a 3D printer that prints out more 3D printers.

Bad English has always been with us, but clarity and style are far more important than observing dusty usage diktats

Hanging thing.

I wanted something to keep some shirts on. So I built this.

After rushing the glue up it ended a bit wonky in the end but you have to learn these things. I should have glued up the base separately first and got that square rather than doing it all at once. Some cork feet on two of the feet should fix it.
I am not overly happy with the style it's a bit simplistic and clunky, which is okay but not quite like the look I would choose. It's basically how I drew it but I was not quite happy with that either. Maybe I'll have another go at some point. Anyway it's got the shirts off the door handle so that's a big win!

You'll be making the shirts, of course.

Neil Gaiman Reads A Christmas Carol. Using the notes that Dickens made to use when he was performing it. I do like his reading style and it's a great story even without the Muppets!

Built for comfort!

Just need to add a little back support and I'm done. Really satisfying to screw the seat down and try it out for the first time.

That seat does look a little large. It's quite comfy though so I'll leave it for now. Maybe increasing the chamfer round the edges could help. Not sure if I am going to paint it or not. I have some really nice light grey that might go well.

A great cup of coffee and a nice cake. Relaxed in the sun on the terrace overlooking the dock.

A nice cup of coffee, decent sandwich and cake selection. Seating outside is away from the traffic. It may not be the most picturesque part of oxford but if you want a good cup of coffee in a quiet spot this could be the place for you.
