Happy #handtoolthursday ! The router plane is one of my very favorite tools. Steve came up with a pretty brilliant tip while we were working on the joinery for the farmhouse table. Because the lapped joints for the table legs are so large, it's hard to get the floor of the joint perfectly level, because there's no material on which to register the side of the router plane in the middle of the joint. So we cut three channels and left the waste in the two middle sections of the joint so we could level the floor of the three channels at once while there was still material on which to register the sole of the router plane. Then, when we removed the rest of the waste, it was far easier to level the floor of the joint, because we had three reference points for the chisel.
Day 19 of inktober. This challenge is definitely teaching me the difficulty of coming up with a new topic each day and knowing how to draw it. Today I took a suggestion from my friend Ryan of what to draw and he said motorcycles. I have never drawn motorcycles before so this was... an experience for sure. I think I was mostly successful though considering so I’m happy with it. For this piece I went super simple and used a staedtler triplus fineliner and a kuretake brush pen for the blacks and a combo of a prismacolor pencil and a stabilo colored pencil in white for the highlights. #inktober#inktober2017#industrialdesign#industrialdesigner#industrialdesignstudent
The ZTE Axon M dares to do something no phone company has dared to. A phone with dual touchscreen displays. The ZTE Axon M comes slightly thicker than your average phone, and you notice a hinge running down the right edge. That’s because when you open the phone out, you get the added benefit of two touchscreen displays. Although the question one is bound to ask is how much of a benefit is it really?

For #tbt this week let us visit the 1970s inside Hamilton Hall, where we see an industrial design student hard at work on his art. Some things will never change at #UArts , where it is always the maker's moment.
