Here is beautiful Holly holding her brothers birthday gift. Thank you @ooohhholly for supporting HĀMIORA. This design was inspired from traditional Samoan patters and design. The meaning of the piece reflects her family and the bond that she has with her brother. The pattern located near the top of the ukulele represents each of the four family members. The detailed pattern under that represents a pulse meaning that the family is central to life. The two patterns under other than building the flow of the design represents a variation of sharks teeth, known to depict prosperity and resourcefulness a trait cultivated in the home. The strand stemming out from bulk of the design is of her brother, Connor. This shows his growth and potential moving into his own. The two patterns underneath shows the foundation he is building for his future. Kia ora again Holly for supporting what I love and I hope your brother can enjoy the Uke and the meaning of it. #hamiora#ukulele#custom#art#story
Installing multiple items that all need to line up and have equal spacing can be a really time consuming process. Currently working on some marquee letters for an upcoming project and to be more efficient the letters are cut upside down so that the point where we weld our fasteners can be etched on the back. These points are changed to a cyan layer so the laser reads it as etch and not cut. These points are transferred to a separate sheet used to mark hole placement on the mounting surface. After the holes are drilled the rods welded to the back of the letters go into the holes and are tightened from behind. The prep work takes some time but it speeds along the install time significantly. #lasercutting#lasercut#autocad#cad#steel#metal#custom#letters#marquee#design#custom#lndont#london
Finally stained the media console and applied some poly on it tonight .. some decent pictures to come .. this is actually the back of the cabinet where a inset panel will sit and hide wall color ( middle section will be open ) the ends will have doors. But look at the curl in that maple !! Pics don’t do it justice .
