- been a long stretch since I was able to sit down and do any carving, finally got this one done. I'm not sure why but this one has a very South Asian feel to me. Maybe the lil squiggly detail on the left(reminds me of Thailand) and the reverse reverse barb sort of reminds me of something you would see in Indian carving.

Carved from cow bone and lashed with wax coated linen cord. Will post the link to the etsy sale as soon as I get it online. 45 + 5 bucks shipping.

My LCD broke a week ago, so since I couldn't paint in Photoshop I leapt at the chance to do something more hands-on: merge an old clock with an USB memory stick. I got inspired from looking at the wonders at Jake von Slatt's Steampunk Workshop [link] and wanted to do something similar. I'm wearing this as a necklace at work; never have to look for my USB again. :)

The larger one has a turned Maple handle, and the smaller one has a turned Sapele handle. The tips are made from broken stainless steel guide pins.

This is a wood burning of a raven. The random lines are from Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven". Although he cheated on his wife, Virginia Clemm, which she at once claimed to have caused her failing immune system to catch tuberculosis and die at the age of 24, his works are legendary and are some of my favorite.

The man may have been a bit of a whack and an opium smoking, alcoholic, cheating bastard... but he sure knew poetry.

I spoke truthfully.

"Very good. You are now in posession of the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device. With it, you can create your own portals. These intra-dimensional gates have proven to be completely safe. The device however, has not. Do not touch the operational end of the device. Do not look directly at the operational end of he device. Do not submerge the device in liquid, even partially. Most importantly, under no circumstances should you... *static*".

This is MY version of the ASHPD, specifically from Portal 2 (which is why it looks dirty & used). Made out of PVC pipe, wood, Wireform and Durham Rockhard Putty. It does light up! There's a switch on the handle that changes the colors. It's not 100% accurate but I am very pleased with it. I only had the weekends of two months to work on it.

Well, that was different. This was the first model I've ever built with cardstock. Not really hard, just tedious. Took a lot longer than usual since I had to take extra care in making all of the folds... but whatever.

NOTE:</b> For any prospective builders, only use cardstock if you think your model is going to see a lot of handling (or if you just prefer cardstock to regular paper). It's not really worth the extra effort if it's just going to be "look-only".

Don't be daunted by the 10 pages of parts for this model, it isn't very complex. The only reason for so many is the scale at which it builds to. I wanted to make this as close to "full scale" as I could (I estimate between 18-24 inches, 46-61 cm), but any larger than its current 11 inches (28 cm) would require either some messy broken-up parts and/or access to a printer capable of handling more than just 8.5x11 inch paper. If anyone does have access to such a printer, I would love to see a scaled up build... hint hint ;)

So you don't have to ask, yes, this model is "disassemble-able", by means of the 2 pegs between the head/torso and torso/base (see picture at the end of the pieces PDF document). I also got lazy again and didn't write instructions, so I've uploaded the pepakura file in their place.

So it seems I have a slight addiction to using Cocobolo wood at the moment.

Here is my latest item available just in time for valentines day. Similar to previous pieces but a bit more complicated, which is always my natural progression.

I hand carved the heart from Cocobolo wood. I cut then bent an old watch back to fit the shape. Using recycled cogs and gears I created a small unique movement. I shaped some copper wire which I inlaid into the heart for a little bit of extra detail.

I fitted a 32GB USB drive inside which can simply be pulled out when required. It features a blue activity LED framed by a metal ring that shows through the lid of the key when working.

I have also given the wood a glossy finish leaving it more durable but also silky to the touch.


All the watch parts have come from damaged or irreparable wrist watch's that have been hand disassembled and then combined to create a true, miniature work of art.

This item is available to buy from my etsy shop [link]
