Star Wars BB-8

No Comments 3286 Views1

Having seen the new Star Wars film, the force awakens, I had to have a  go at making a model of BB-8 droid that featured in the film. Here is my attempt at making him.  Obviously with the copyright issues, he is not for sale, just for fun and for me!

I made a sphere and cut it in half and hollowed out one half to make the top and glued an earth magnet inside. The bottom was left solid to give it some weight.  Glued both halves back together and pyro’d the design to cover up some of the join.  The head was made in two parts and again a small magnet was glued inside. The small detail parts were turned out of some African Blackwood.

Hand Carved Gardener and Finial

Well this was something totally different for me to make.  Not really tried carving before making the birds, so when requested to make a finial with a difference, I jumped at the chance.  This chap is made out of Sapelle along with the Finial, roughed out with the Dremel and finer detail hand carved with a new set of First Cut chisels.  His new owner was very keen to get him up in pride of place on the end of his new workshop gable end.  Another happy customer.

Bullet Pen Supplier to the National Small-bore Rifle Association, Bisley

They say that personal recommendations for any business is the best source of advertising.  Following an initial private sale of a Bolt Action Bullet Pen to a work colleague, he then showed his friend, who then ended up purchasing a large order of Bullet Pens.  This was fantastic in its own right, but this has recently expanded as he then showed one of my Bullet Pens to the National Small-bore Rifle Association (NSRA) who have now placed a large order for a mixture of Bolt Action and Twist Action Bullet Pens.
