Been working on a new version of the Vacuum Lamp. Surprisingly, a friend found the exact model of Electrolux the original was made from. I’ve made some slight modifications for the better, but pretty much the exact design. Only this time the wooden parts are made out of walnut instead of stained oak.
I was helping my parents build a coffee table this week. My mom has been holding on to these old rough sawn pine boards for over a decade. We cut them to length and screwed them down to an existing coffee table. After some sanding, it looked great.
This may not be Kosher with the Lego purists out there, but I milled up a Lego brick with studs on both surfaces. Basically, it has two male ends instead of the traditional one male, one female.
Side note, I used old floorboards as the stock material (maple I think). This may be the perfect material for small desktop CNCs. Flat, milled hard wood that is essentially free. Just watch out for nails.
