Porsche Spider

Making this model is not easy. The body took some time in Blender but was ok once on the cnc machine. The wheels were easy in Fusion 360 but really hard once on the cnc machine. Alignment was difficult. I think I have about 20 failed attempts. Still have to make the steering wheel.



Eyes open

I stole another block from my kids and used it to make something!

CNC Enclosure

I have built an enclosure for my cnc router. No more dust and less noise in the garage.

Designed in fusion 360.

I still have to build an enclosure for the electronics on the side of the machine.

Willem Koekkoek

I saw this painting from Willem Koekkoek at Tefaf in Maastricht. I did not have the budget to buy it, but I really liked it. According Wikipedia Willem Koekkoek was known for his idealized paintings of Holland.

CNC Refurbish

I’m working on a cnc machine from the Makerspace Leiden. This unfinished design was made in Fusion360.

Porsche Spider

Work in progress. I’m still working on the wheels and other details.

Juffer van De Lairesse

Die schilder laat zich blindelings door zyn begeerte vangen,
En blyft aan ‘t Jufferschap en zulk gezelschap hangen;
En schildert vorders al zyn leevens dagen niet
Dan Jufferschap; het is alles Juffers wat men ziet.

Inspired by a poem of De Lairesse. Made of an old wooden toy block. I hope my sons will not miss the block.

I still want to reduce the size of the foot, but I don’t have the right tools for it now.

Hongkong


Hongkong a lovely city.

I love the double-decker trams. I love the walled city look. I love the sounds, smell and food. I love the chaos. I love the relaxation. I love Hongkong.

It has been a long time ago since I visited Hongkong for the last time, so I have to use my imagination.

I made this image using Blender mostly.

Aphrodite


Wooden statuette of Aphrodite. 3D model from Geoffrey Marshal. Made with my CNC machine.

Woodworking

I am getting old. Time for woodworking. It was this or playing golf. Easy pick for me 😉
