This video and project was created as part of a collaboration between 21 talented makers across the world.
The purpose of this collaboration is to raise awareness to the hardship and difficulties families and children face every day when it comes to the disability and/or sickness of a child/children.
Every country in the world struggles to give the support both financially and physically that families with sick and disabled children desperately need.
Steven Twydell set up a campaign on the back of this amazing collaboration to help raise funds for children’s Charities around the world. The campaign is called Make It Matter.
All the projects made in this collaboration will be auctioned between the 18th and 25th of February on the Make It Matter web site here :- www.makersmakeitmatter.com All information regarding this campaign can also be found on the website.
The proceeds from this collaboration will be divided equally and sent to a children’s Autism charity in each of the countries the collaborators are from.
I turned this Alumilite lidded box on the lathe, Brad cast a bankisa pod in the Alumilite. This was my first time turning Banksia pod, man this stuff is really dense, and dusty….but well worth it. The box is 4 1/2″ tall and 3 3/4″ in diameter.
I turned this John Beaver inspired lidded box. I used the Miterset to make the segmented rings for the wave, and lid. I used the band saw to cut the arc which creates the wave after it’s turned on the lathe. I used Maple and Walnut for this project. The box is 6″ tall and 4″ in diameter.
This is so cool!
