LED Clock


I wanted an LED clock for the garage so I ended up making one. I bought a kit from China, it went together easily although there is a little gotcha with one of the LED segments going in upside down. It was a little bit bright and hard to see the red segments against the unlit segments but that was easily fixed with a layer of masking tape over the front. Goes well in the garage.



Winged Heart Remake


I very long time ago I made this winged heart using stacked veneers (can't believe it was 2.5 years ago). It's been to most maker faires with me and it's received a lot of love but I was finally asked to remake it at the recent Halifax Mini Maker Faire. With all remakes I took the opportunity to make some improvement, most of the feathers are now stuck on the backboard which made it easier to assemble and the heart is now made flat because the stacked veneers were too awkward last time. I'm also sharing the files this time around. (svg here)
