Monsanto Charged With Crimes Against Nature and Humanity, Set to Stand Trial in 2016 8th January 2016 By Carolanne Wright Contributing Writer for Wake Up World Skill Builder — CNC Panel Joinery I’ve been collecting clever ways of slotting flat stock together since I first read Nomadic Furniture back in 1999, well before the advent of the accessible hobby-class CNC tools that, today, make manufacturing parts like these pretty easy. Now, the world is full of people designing models, project enclosures, sculpture, furniture, and all kinds of other cool stuff to be assembled from parts made on laser cutters and CNC routers, and I keep expecting a definitive book or website to emerge that covers the “bag of tricks” in an organized way. So far, I haven’t found it.

Lights ! The Colourball By the amazing Heath Nash of South Africa.Multicolour flower and butterfly shapes attached to a handmade wire structure.Small: 400mm diam - 240 flowers, Medium: 500mm diam Large: 600mm diam, Extra large: 800mm diam The process: * Lots of bottles are found, sorted and collected. * They are washed very thoroughly (with bio-degradable detergent) and dried. * The handles and bases are carefully removed, and each bottle is splayed open into a semi-flat ‘sheet’. * As many flowers as possible are cut from each bottle * Now each flower has to be formed from a ‘flattish’ shape into a more 3-dimenional form - each petal is folded in half, and individual lines are creased into each (by hand).

Something Extraordinary Is Happening in the World, And Most People Haven't Noticed Most of us haven’t quite realized there is something extraordinary happening. A few months ago, I freed myself from standard-procedure society. I broke the chains of fear that kept me locked up into the system. Since then, I see the world from a different perspective: the one that everything is going through change and that most of us are unaware of that. Why is the world changing? In this post, I’ll point out the eight reasons that lead me to believe it.

Old Boats Become Furniture made from Old Boats The fishermen from the West coast of Africa decorate their boats with brightly coloured geometric designs. The team of Artlantique searches for, and buys old, no longer seaworthy boats to transform... Every piece of Artlantique furniture is unique, as no two boats are ever the same.
