Okay so I didn't make this nebula, but I made the photo of it. Taken with a 16" Newtonian ASA astrograph telescope and an Apogee U16m CCD camera using the Hubble color palette filters, OIII, SII, Ha, for a false color image (the camera shoots in monochrome at 32bits) the original file is almost 100MB so scaled way down for the web and compromised by jpeg artifacts, one really needs to see this as a 4 x 4 foot print to do it justice.

Hence my name, I shoot the sky!

Built my own purple plasma ball.

Fused the borosilicate glass, flushed the sphere in a custom made oven, obtained my own research-grade gases (Xenon, Argon, Krypton) added dash of Nitrogen (mistake!) and catalyst (secrete additive to boost the electrons into a higher orbit, creating more color saturation and increasing the brightness x4). Built a HV, high-tension power-supply and modified the frequency to 50khz and an output of 15,000 volts.

Nice stuff. Is that first one a Blenheim/Bolingbroke?

Ding ding ding! Blenheim it is. Now guess which air force.

With the blue undersides, I'm guessing Finnish.

Ding ding ding. Bonus points for Bolingbroke as well. Well played.


Ta. I'm a Canadian warbird buff, so Bolingbroke was actually the first thing that came to mind (there's one undergoing restoration at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, near where I live).

As my wife is fond of pointing out, all that trivia is taking up valuable real estate in my brain...

Christmas cake a few years ago. Top decorations in fondant on whipped icing. Three layers of a 14" diameter cake.

i.imgur.com
Picture of my niece's cake for her last minute alice in wonderland themed sweet 16 party. She wanted specific colors. And music themed. I hated this cake when I got done. Marshmallow fondant for the outside, except the black fondant which was a chocolate fondant. Chocolate buttercream for the layers with alternating vanilla and chocolate cake layers. This thing weighed 30 lbs easy when I was done. Everything... including fondant completely made from scratch. AND including the gum paste used for the flowers and pages of music (which were painted by hand).

My pride and joy after 2 year in ceramics in High School. I call it Alda Calma. My inspiration were the trees in the movie Fellowship of the Ring, in Caras Galdhon. Henceforth, it's name is in Sindarin, and means "tree lamp." The canopy is really just a bowl upside down and just sits on the base of the tree. I used every "green" color of paint I could find to glaze it. I put tea light candles in the base.

On top of the snuggie, a trivia board game design I made for graphic design class a couple years back. Pieces aren't in the shot since they're just generic doodads bought at a comic book store.

The coffee table and the sofa behind it. I built both 38 years ago and the table is still around and in use at my daughter's home. The ceramic bowl the cat is in was made by my ex, 40 years ago and is still in use.

Oh, and these, from when I was building model aircraft:

Model of an old run down schoolhouse. Built almost entirely from scratch.


Cool! I still piddle with model cars & stuff. I always wanted a train set when I was a kid just so I could go crazy building the layout.
Here's the last artsy fartsy thing I did. Well, half of it. Me & my buddy Marty did it for Rick Miller of Southern Culture On The Skids. It's a 3D version of the album cover of their Australian release of Zombified.
