Mahogany House Number Plaque

I decided to test my skills with epoxy resin pouring. This project was originally meant to be something totally different, but I changed the design when I realised I could make an awesome house number plaque and it would also be a perfect excuse to experiment with epoxy resin pouring. It all started with this…

Hot Air Balloon Lamp

Since I built the Triple Bunk Bed, I’ve felt that the ceiling lamp was not special enough next to it. Now was the time to get rid of that old IKEA lamp, and build something truly special. I think I made six different versions of the lamp, and ended up choosing the “hot air balloon”…
