April 13, 2010

One of the tasks I set myself this Christmas was to make Sarah Jane something only using left-over stuff from the garage. I had a spare sheet of MDF, some PVC pipe and dowel rods and decided to make her a “Doodle Desk”. This takes rolls of paper and lets you crank out a new […]

Transparent concrete

April 9, 2010

Litracon is a really neat idea – concrete blocks reinforced with fiber optic cables. So light can pass through it. I was so impressed with this that I thought I would have a go at making some myself. There was a neat Instructable recently that demonstrated one way to build it – I gave it […]
