going baroque

kegeltisch standup

up-cycling materials that have been hanging around for 15 years: 3 bowling pins discarded by our local bowling alley, one leg and picture frame from *kea rejects, part of Chinese table cloth and an aerial support. Resulting in a laptop/side table height adjustable from stand up to sit down in arm chair.

I must have been overwhelmed by my baroque urge in the process because this was the initial design:

new improvements

finally I have succumbed and had some varifocal glasses made and bout a pair of clip on sunshades for them. The scope for upgrade is big, so I started with the sunshades, using Japanese origami paper on top of laminated watercolor paper.

I also added some braces on the sides since the original middle clip kept coming off too easily.

Next step is to improve the glasses themselves…

boats

just before the end of summer I found a little boat club where I can keep my kayak.

and then we went on a lovely trip to Pylos and surrounds, staying in Marathopoli.

These were definitely the last days of summer, my friend has pulled the blanket down under.
