Ynez_group

Group lunch at Cafe Ynez!

Max_Log

Max stares down a honking big chunk of wood he’s just loaded onto the lathe.

Max_Shavings

And then, he attacks!  Shavings fly everywhere.

Anastasia_Mortis

Anastasia’s mortises, or mortices, or mortae?

Daniel_Approaches

Daniel loads a file on the CNC control station.

Daniel_Bending

Daniel puts a bit into the CNC.

Daniel_Checking

After affixing the piece of wood he’ll mill to the CNC bed with double sided tape and screws, Daniel gives it a final check.

CNC_CNCing_2

The CNC CNCing.

Daniel_Picking

Freshly milled daxophone tongues!

Multigrain

Jason calls these things “segmented pieces” but I prefer to think of them as multigrain cardboard loaves.

Jason_Plasters

Jason slaps some plaster onto turned cardboard.

Jason_Glue

At the end of every working day, Jason deliquesces, becoming a viscous, milky fluid.  We pour him carefully into this container and close the lid tightly.  In the morning, he assumes his human form once again.

Jason_Glue2

He has a collection of these, but only one of them is labeled.  Imagine how much trouble we’d all be in if we put him into the wrong container!  Sometimes I feel like he’s daring us to make a mistake.

Egg

A hollow cardboard vessel by Jason.
