I’ve been fascinated with the (collection of) material(s, named) wood for quite a while, but rarely worked with it during my education since paper, cardboard and foam were cheaper, better available to me and I knew I could easily work with them.
But ever since making the mobile speaker set, my interest for making things from wood has only grown, so I thought I’d share some recent and not-so-recent wooden creations.
I’ve probably mentioned this before, but I really like to give useful, home-made presents. Last Christmas I made 2 food related projects, both with beech wood.
Experiments with wood 6: Homemade bread slicer.
Cutting straight slices from home made bread is quite a challenge without any guiding tool, so I made one.
Experiments with wood 7: Speculoos molds.
Speculoos is a delicious type of cookie, usually eaten in the holiday period (december). Home made speculoos is even better, but to really let it reach its full potential, it should be shaped nicely as well. I mainly used a dremel to carve out a few holiday-themed shapes in both sides of 2 pieces of solid beech wood.
