Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Wood working, metal working, ceramics/pottery, etc.
So I haven't seen a thread dedicated to things like wood working and metal working so I thought I would start one. Recently I've been learning things like welding and air brushing and I thought I would put these things to good use making some tables and other things that are hopefully artistic as well as functional. I hope some other people around here love doing this sort of stuff as much as I do.
So here is a dump of things I've done over the past 3 months:
End table made of beetle kill and welded 1" steel square tubing.
Coffee Bar cover welded steel:
My first coffee table. 2" steel square tubing and steel sheet for the top.
My double sided coffee table. 2" steel square tubing with a rust patina on one side and airbrushed solvent dyes on the other:
Acrylic air brushed on galvanized steel:
Solvent Dye air brushed on galvanized steel.
No, I am not really communist. Yes, it is weird that I use this name.
