Figurine of St. Ambrose for my Beehouse

I made this to go on my beehouse come spring, and it is based on an exhibit at a local museum. As patron saint of beekeepers, St. Ambrose will probably not improve my beekeeping game, but at least it gave my lathe a chance to run off on my. Enjoy, and remember to be Inspired!

Unlock (Almost) any Door – with the Skeleton Key [from Skyrim]

In the vein of many a video game inspired project (which reminds me to upload the “What have I done” on that subject), I give you the Skeleton Key, an item from Skyrim that served as an arcane┬ámaster key. I have not quite gotten it to work yet, but I believe I am almost there… Watch how I made it and share it if you liked it! Enjoy, and remember to be Inspired!

Lidded Box featuring a Hidden Feature!

This project started out as me turning a lidded box for this colorful indian spice mix that is supposed to help your digestion. It did help my turning skills, and to help whoever uses it to their helping I added a hidden feature to the central spire.

And as always, remember to be Inspired!
