1000 Sharks need a new home


To celebrate making 1000 different things on my blog, I made 1000 sharks in a big shark tank, we took it to Derby Maker Faire and now we're not sure what to to with it. If you would like to own the project it can now be yours, you will need to come and collect it from Nottingham and you will need a transit van to put it in (or you could just take the sharks). Please email me if you would like it, msraynsford@gmail.com

Parquet Flooring


There are a lot of interesting floor tiling patterns that I thought it would be fun to recreate for model makers. This parquet flooring pattern is neat and efficient. All the 'planks' can be lined up and cut together from a single sheet of material ensuring all the grain runs the same way before being cut and that just adds to the effect once they have been placed. I drew the pattern on the base plate to ensure everything was lined up squarely as it was glued in to place.
