Note: This machine is on display at Atomic Rooster pub July 14, 2015! Come by for a drink and to hang out!
I’ve been cutting LP records to make vinyl clocks and I started cutting CDs! Who doesn’t like shiny!
You can see my process evolve in the pictures and video below!
In my first experiment I cut a CD and the jewel case. This went pretty well and I knew I was onto something.
Once the concept was proven I went a step further and did an inlay Banksy Clock and an inlay flower.
I decided to make a fixture to make things more efficient. Here’s the first fixture.
Worked well so I made a load of other things. Guitar picks, hands for clocks, price tags and much more.
The fixture needed improvement and got worn out pretty quickly. So I went another step.
I made about 200 pairs of earrings and about 50 pendants. That fixture started to wear out so I made another with a collection of improvements.
As you can see below things have grown from there considerably.
