home studio

Where "studio" = "cardboard box, paper and a desk lamp"

Shooting product shots for upcoming project. Tethered shooting makes life a lot easier, but sadly my camera is a bit too old to let me do live views. Maybe if it goes well I'll be able to afford a less vintage Nikon..

Woodworking level up!

(viewed 696 times)
Why yes that is a sliver of purpleheart atop an even slimmer wedge of blackwood, sandwiched in what I think is white oak. Ballpoint pen tip for scale.

Unfinished as yet because the purpleheart has been worked so it needs 24 hours to go more purple. Will probably have a gentle clear lacquer, finished to satin or thereabouts.

Network attached storage

2TB Buffalo NAS rehomed inside a classic Sony tape deck. The NAS leds are wired to the VU meters, and are also visible as blue glints underneath the lovely fat switches. Tape deck is non-functional, but all the buttons and switches still clunk around pleasingly.
