Part of the beauty of creating art is not knowing what the heck you’ll come up with. Such was the case when I got a request for windchimes.
After trial and error with the welder, some wire, metal hunks and wood, I threw all the error in a heap and came up with the following creation:
These RYNchimes may not sound like a symphony, but they are guaranteed not to rust, crust or bleed (although they could probably kill a small child if they fell on his head).
The biggest lesson I learned during this experiment was how incredibly awesome the Dremel rotary tool is. While I’ve used this lethal, spinning machine for sanding and grinding edges, this is the first time I’ve used it to cut through metal.
Sparks are quite pretty as long as they are not flying at your eyes.
Alternate RYNchime views.
I don’t know yet if the person likes them. If not, I have plenty of saw blades and old fence posts to cut through for the next set.
Have you ever had the joy of using a Dremel rotary tool?
For what? The instructions say not to use it for dentistry.
Dear dad got a duck for Father’s Day. Not because he hunts, but because I wanted to go with a traditional Father’s Day image, which leaves us with a mere three choices: ducks, neckties or a pipe (the smoking kind, not the type that you use to bash in a skull).
Dad was fascinated with his duck, even though he admitted at first glance he thought it a pelican. He also promised not to let the darling duck befall the same fate as the chicken I made my mom for Mother’s Day.
WARNING: The following sequence of photos contains disturbing images.
Some of you may have seen this horrific montage which I posted around Mother’s Day, but I post it again in the hopes of saving chickens who cross the road in the future.
Mom claims she was trying to help the chicken cross the road, but these photos disclose otherwise.
What did you get your dad for Father’s Day? A duck? A necktie? A pipe?
