On Welding and Grinding

On Welding:

the Helmets are solar powered.

The right way:



#1 - around $2.00 - $3.00 -  a basic grinding wheel that will save you time and money.  It's the business action of welding.

the Next stages:
Sanding Wheel (Which needs a different base  - ask me or the shop staff to help


Di-Grinder Wheels (*for those HARD to REACH spots - NOT FOR THE WHOLE THING

and for the final touches

This is Awesome

This is an installation piece made by Anne Hamilton. This install took place in an armory in New York. The install consisted of a giant 70 foot curtain controlled by people swinging, and there is also a place where people are speaking to pigeons surrounding the building (shown briefly in the video). I like this installation for how massive it is and how there is a connection between the audience and nature in an otherwise "industrial" place.

jLaForge Text Book 01

Artist: Scott Reuman
Blossom Bar. Mahogany, Birds-eye Maple

Corner Display Unit
All Who Wander

Agua borealis, the Original River Lamp™    
Scott Reuman I an artist I chose to add to my digital book. I love the amazing things Scott creates out of wood. His wood almost speaks to you, I love the inlays he does in his riverseries collection. Scott is self taught but uses aspects of his degree in engineering on a daily basis.

I really like the stuff he does. It is very unique with the curves he incorporates into his pieces.

David Bowen - underwater
