Wooden Engineering Equipement

Japanese woodworker Kinohaguruma makes some of the the coolest works of wooded engineering I have ever seen. Here’s the first video that introduced me to him, a wooden excavator: See how the entire thing is made of wood.  There’s a bunch of different gears, and different transmissions and gear boxes that change what is actually being … Continued

Did you know you can use 4 9v batteries some foil, and a piece of graphite/lead from a mechanical pencil to make a mini plasma cutter?  I didn’t. It turns out that you can, and it’s quite straightforward too.  In case you don’t believe this will work, here’s a video of it: {Imgur}

Landscape Art

Artist Stand Herd uses the land as his canvas, creating giant “crop circles” except, they are rarely circles, and are sometimes advertisements.

I’m about to share two videos with you of the majestic and beauty of Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park.  These are places I didn’t get a chance to visit because of the road closures and winterness of it.   I really like the camping one where there’s not much of a night sky view, … Continued

At first glance this looks like an elaborate painting.  And it’s true to a sense.  It has been painted, but it’s many individual pieces of canvas that have been folded onto themselves that then has been painted.  Here, take a closer look: This is the artwork of painters Stephen Stum and Jason Hallman, known as … Continued

Artfull Tires

Here’s yet another re-purposed item made into beautiful works of art.  This time, it’s easy to argue that these tires are of no practical use anymore, and their destruction is perfectly acceptable.  I’m 111% sure that no one will bitch and moan that valuable landfill material is being decimated into “art”.  Wim Delvoye carves these … Continued
