Food and cooking can be wondrous! Today I taught a pizza class in Andrew Evan‘s Wonder d.school class. We had a great time discussing all of the parts of the process, many of which seem quite magical: rising dough, Neapolitan pizza oven thermodynamics and ingredient combinations.
this is an awesome way to make squash soup inside a Cinderella squash, inspired by one of my favorite cookbooks, Canal House Cooking.
I wanted to make some custom ping pong paddles using maple, walnut and purple heart, laminating them and using a laser cut guide to route them to shape.
I’ve become slightly obsessed with erlenmeyer flasks. I love their shape. I used a diamond tipped Dremmel bit to cut off the base of one using a makeshift jig and then cast the flask in poly-urethane (gross) and then tried to pour concrete in. I built a really simple jig that I cut out of duron on the laser cutter and unfortunately it floated up into my mold as I poured the polyurethane. Rookie mistake. Iteration 2 coming soon. I want to make it into a lamp shade.
