Well it is starting to look like Thursdays are becoming my new post day. Actually, I wrote a full length post yesterday. When I went to save it, I realized I wrote the same topic about 2 months ago. No wonder the words flowed so easily. Throughout this week I have been modeling with wood. Slowly, I have built all the articulated pieces for my whirligig project. Glad I did not wait till the last minute. There’s a lot more to it than I realized. This weekend, I’ll be assembling and painting it as well as making a short video for the contest submission. Today, I thought I would share some of my favorite Woodworking Geek photos, from across the web. Apparently, there are a lot more of us than I thought.
All those years spent bouncing on brick blocks paid off:
A few years ago, an innovating young fellow came up with a Steampunk keyboard (which I showed you here). As with any idea that caught on, someone decided to capitalize on a DIY kit for a wooden version.
One could say your not a true Woodworking Geek unless you can spell “Geek” in wood.
Holly has asked me to build a chest that hides the cat’s litter pan and toys as well as providing a perch. While I designed one based on a cedar chest, I am really liking the idea of a TARDIS kitty area:

Over at 1337 motif, A wide variety of Geeky cutting boards and coaster can be found:
As a segment woodturner I can really appreciate this. I count somewhere between 196 and 225 individual segments (pending whether those are 14 or 15 segment rows) on this 4×4 inch coaster. That is impressive!
Ever think about building a computer table? Well stop your designs until you look at this! This table does not just provide a place to put the computer…It is the computer!
See the full video of this table in and out Here.
If your going to go all out on the ultimate computer table then you have to top it off with this:

That wraps it up for today. Its time to get ready for the weekend projects.
Until next time,
