I was watching a science-history documentary and it showed a reenactment of Saussure in the Alps with a field-book tied in this way. I searched for hours, but could find no reference on the web. I paused the documentary to draw a picture and figured it out from that. It is a surprisingly simple, yet clever, binding. (A geology scale-card seemed appropriate.)

Photoset reblogged from Redacted with 2 notes

waegen:

I have two take-home tests, so instead of doing that, I made a little book. It was supposed to be practice of a new binding I saw on television, but that plan did not take the project’s wishes into account. It has half blank pages and half graph-paper. It was also sized to include little envelopes, but the project had other ideas on that, also. Anyway, it’s about hand-sized - like a little address book.

Rough-Prototype Tablet Stand (with stylus holder)

Eventually, I hope to make a case/stand of wood, but this will hold me until then.

would another blogger handcraft an animated gif demonstration of the Visvalingam algorithm for their followers? why would anyone settle for less?

Bézier Fantasia by Wægen

An appreciation of the graceful Bézier curve. (I was bored, so I played with Bézier regression. I think the results are more aesthetically pleasing when used inappropriately.)

Graham Crackers - The Process

Upper-Left: Rolling Out the Dough
I use a pasta maker to roll cracker dough to a consistent thickness, which allow more-even cooking. Behind the pasta maker is a white-handled docker (for poking holes) and a roller “pizza” cutter (some day I will buy or make a perforating wheel). Also pictured are crackers, ready for the oven, on cooking parchment.

Upper-Right: Baked Crackers
A baking stone also aids even baking. In the lower part of the photo is a wooden paddle for moving crackers to and from the oven. (The stone and the paddle are sold for pizza making.)

Middle-Left: Crackers Cooling

Middle-Right: Crackers Burst and Moved to Storage
I don’t waste the slightly burnt and slightly misshapen bits, but segregate the storage to impress guests with ‘pretty’ crackers.

Bottom: Totally-Unnecessary Extreme Close-Up
Because I can.
