This was one of those spontaneous projects that simply went straight into action. Lee-Kuo used his 3D skills and completely designed the instrument in Cinema 4D using a grid system for the tuned length. After he had completed the model we decided to build it. It’s a slow process but we are making great progress. You can watch a stop animation of this instrument on my YouTube channel, Lee-Kuo created the animation and music for the video. I will update this post when we complete the instrument.  Watch the animation here

This is something I always wanted to do with students. I have drawn parabolic designs since I was young and always wanted to create them with cotton and felt. Having a small group of home schoolers was a great opportunity to make this craft, it needed approximately 100 nails for each board which they hammered with great delight. The finished crafts were great and they were really pleased.

I designed this CD rack for my students. It’s made entirely from popsicle sticks. You will need a special 15 mm thick stick if you wish to make one. After the first design for my students I designed the special curved rack for my 10 CD music collection. They look great!!! and are very easy to make.
