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”…

Xtool D1 Pro 20W enclosure – Part 1

I decided that a laser cutter is a perfect addition to my workshop. The problem with laser cutters is that it generates smoke so I can’t just place it next to my 3D printer in the house. At the same time, it is pretty sensitive for dust, so my workshop is not really an optimal…

Wooden Name Plaques

I’m working on the triple bunk bed I designed nearly a year ago and I thought that it required some personal touch. I designed name plaques for the kids, made from two layers of 10-ply 5mm birch plywood. The rear plate has the design + the “holes” of the letters, and the front holds the…

F1 style go-kart steering wheel

For my next project which is an electric go-kart, I needed to come up with a way to mount all the electronic controls somehow. I decided to get a go-kart steering wheel and design a F1 inspired inlay that fits to the centre of it. Designing it was much more tricky than I thought as…

Babar – The water spouting elephant

A stomach flu visited the family this week. When I was bathing the youngest one for the third time in the middle of the night, I realised that we only have one million bath toys and we needed more! I started thinking about water pressure, and how I would be able to make some sort…

Companion firewood holder

I made a hanging firewood holder some time back for my sauna, and I’ve started the bad habit of taking the firewood inside in small batches and placing it on the floor. This had to be corrected as I could easily stumble over them while moving inside. You can find the build log for the…

Triple Bunk Bed – Design

I’m planning to make a triple bunk bed for my two kids. The lowest bed is a queen size and will be used as a chill area/sofa, and possibly me and my wife will sleep there if we need more than two bedrooms for guests. I’m not going to do any fancy joinery or similar,…

Combined bookmark and page holder

I was thinking that maybe I should try my luck on the Printables contest for bookmarks. I haven’t joined any of their contests before, so this was an easy one to begin with. I sat down, got an idea, and couple of hours later this was born. Somehow I just feel so happy how it…

Metalworker’s Pacifier

I was too cheap to buy a new chip collector, and I didn’t like the fact that I would need to use two hands to release the chips. As I had some leftover neodymium magnets from an old project, I decided that I’ll spend my Saturday night to design one that would fit my needs….
