Workholding Octopus (Jan 17th, 2010)
I know, not a very elegant name, but the description fits. I fabricated the contraption from mild steel and pre-existing plastic parts. That base is solid steel bar stock, gives it some nice weight. There is something similar in common use called a 'Third Hand', but I thought I'd take it a step further.

All the other items pictured (soldering iron, flush cutters, electronics projects) were Christmas gifts from Santa for Ocean and I.

XylemSci Book (Jan 16th, 2010)
Every year for Xmas I like to gift my family and friends with items of my own crafting that usually have a collective theme. This year, because of the wonders of the printing press, I was able to duplicate my efforts (Fifteen times).

Behold the XylemSci Five Year Anniversary Book, 40 sq. ft. of visual enjoyment. It took me a couple months to put together and left my bank account empty for the holidays but it sure made an impact with all those who received one.
