Just in the planning stages of a guitar build. This is what i built in the mean time.
These things give me something to do when I get bored at work. Had to re-do the paracord on this one cos I wasn't happy with it. They're all made from old files and are sharp enough to shave with.
Also like to make bread
Yes, it is next to a light switch.
Now do you mean you make beer or that you make glasses empty?
I make the beer and the glasses empty.
I design and build scenery
And I build 1/4" scale models of the scenery before building full size
Hmmmmm I wouldn't mind having a custom set of Colt W. Knight 1911 grips...
Tele build under way, but designed and built both car and trailer
I made stained glass panels for my house. Walked into a gallery/workshop and asked them to show me how to make 'em. I saved 50% by doing it myself!
I'm pretty proud of the sandblasted panels. They were really fun to make.
I made 5 of these. The sandblasted parts are sandwich glass. I covered the colored side with a big piece of vinyl (like electrical tape), cut the design with an exacto knife, peeled the parts I wanted to blast. It was so gratifying to see how a simple technique can turn out like REAL ART!
All of the designs have some kind of auspicious or seasonal meaning. The turtle, crane and koi are all symbols of longevity; the yellow one is a harvest moon--and yes, the little round one below is an eggplant. Many of them were cribbed from a book of Japanese textile patterns. Others were shamelessly pilfered and adapted from the Internet. Some were simply photographs that I drew over with a sharpie.
I'll pull them out and take them with me if we ever move; the next guy can make his own.
I make all kinds a stuff. I'm working on a cutting board that says Ferrari now I doubt I'll get to take test drive, The rocking horse I made for my Daughter I made my son one also it was decapitated in about 2 months.
If you find some wood you like, send it over, and I'll make you a set.
Great idea for a thread!
I build electric violins, and plan on doing an acoustic one of these days. I also have recently gotten into photography, if that counts as making things. The electric here I built, the acoustic I did not.
I really like the second picture.
Beautiful creations! Keep them coming, I love looking at this stuff!
A gun next to a light switch?????
This has to be my favorite post this week......
I built this a few years back.
One of my other hobbies is restoring old fly fishing gear. Here is a 1920s reel I redid (and still use).
Here are a couple rods I brought back from oblivion.
I did the lapidary for this set of 4 crowns:
The rest of the images are here:
The amethysts are rough shaped, but flat on the bottom to sit in the settings better. That fit with the period we wanted. I did not do the metalwork for these (but I've dome others).
Wish I had pictures of some of the others.
I guess I could say I did this:
It's not everyone that designs their own house.
The rest of those pictures are here:
I did put the brick up on the front, too.
Lots of other metalwork, jewelry, etc. I did armour professionally for a while out of college until I found a real job.
I guess I just don't take a lot of pictures. The best things I've made so far as my children.
Another car builder here. Here's mine:
