    Fallen Astronaut 2

    Yea make sure to protect that intellectual property so you can inherit it in a few years.You could also be glad that people still care about the works of Mr Van Hoeydonck. It is clear that this is a non commercial interpretation that is closer to an homage then to a counterfeit. Just a tangible projection of the original work to remind people that it is out there. It will ofcourse never come close to the original with its beautiful symbolism. Reminding people of the great things mankind is capable off and the sacrifices people made.I know that replicas of this statue are a touchy subject, and I find it distasteful that you post a plain copyright notice given the controversy around this statue since its original creation. At least explain why Mr Van Hoeydonck objects to this recreation.

  • Storm Trooper Wall Art From Reclaimed Materials

    Looks really cool, I just have some improvements for other people who want to make it. You should be careful with a solid wood frame around a solid wood panel, if the wood starts to expand/contract due to moisture the frame may crack.Using plywood in the center or making it a loose panel in between the frame could prevent that from happening.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frame_and_panel

    Wooden Dead Blow Mallet

    I don't think that lead compresses, it is more that there is a slight delay between the wood and the lead "delivering" their force. This inertia of the head greatly reduces the rebound causing the dead blow effect.If you were to fill the mallet completely with lead shot the compression would be the same but there would be no second "impact" and thus no force to counteract the bounce back.Ofcoure this is just speculation, and someone would need to do some tests to see if this is the case.Also it wouldn't matter what material is inside as long as it can freely move around in there and has a significant weight. Plain sand should work since the wood isn't that heavy. Only downside would be that you need a slightly larger compartment to hold the sand making the hammer a b...

    Wooden Carcassonne board game.

    hm sorry for this very late answer, yes it seems like I posted the wrong link.I wanted to post this link https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/493249/It looks like i typed the last 2 numbers wrong.I myself am working on some laser cut carcassonne tiles, i based mine of a version uploaded on thingiverse and made most expansions already.The only things i still need to do is to design are the meeples, tower segments and gold pieces.And I need to find a place to laser them.

    World's easiest silicone mold.

    Just put the material all around him and let it harden, add 2 straws to the feed or to one foot and the tail so you can fill the mold.One the mold is set you will need to cut the mold to get the dinosaur out.There is a lot of documentation online on how to do this the right way.When the dinosaur is out you can use some tape to keep the mold together wile filling it.It may not last more then 2 casts, if you want something you can use over and over again you need a 2 part mold and some fancy release agents.

    Plywood Hot Wire Foam Cutter

    This is an almost perfect machine.The only thing I can think about to improve it is a way to tilt the arm holding the wire or the table, whatever is easier.Do you have any idea how to adapt this design to allow for these changes ?
