Seal of Rassilon stained glass window

April 4, 2010

Suzannah got me this really rather excellent rendition of the “Seal of Rassilon” logo made out of stained glass. Barry made it  for us – he’s the stepfather of one of the stylists at the salon. It’s incredibly detailed, and must have taken him ages… Club Plush Dallas

My birthday present finally arrives

March 12, 2010

Yay! After a couple of months my birthday present finally arrived from China… At 258Lbs it took Pete’s truck to shift it (thanks Pete!) It’s a…. This would have come in very handy while building the Dalek last year (especially when making the gun). I’ve been following the mini-lathe.com site for setup instructions. So far […]
