Just finished up my replica Dr. Who Tardis. I built the Tardis for my cat and it is built in 1/2 scale. The interior is carpeted and has two large shelves that the kitty can sleep on. Also it time travels.

I recently built a woodworking downdraft table for i3 Detroit. basically the way it works is you hook up the dust collector to a port on the side of the table and then you put your piece on top that you want to sand or use a dremel or router or anything that will make a lot of dust. The table has a downdraft that pulls the dust down inside the table and then out into the dust collector, greatly reducing the amount of dust that comes off of the piece.
This was a metal sculpture I made to hang up in my living room at home. I started by taking a large plate of 3/8th inch thick steel and drawing my lines of where I wanted to make the cuts, I then separated the panels with round stock spacers that I welded into place. I then made an oxidizing solution to spray onto the panel to aggressively rust it, after this was dried I melted and poured pewter onto the piece following my lines and finally I clear coated the whole thing to keep the rust in place.
