This is it, I've done all the tweaks and changes and created my final version of the vale box. It has a lock on the front to protect the goods inside, hand holes for carrying (which are a little large). A tray with 6 slots, one column for each coin type and 1 for each mana type. The lid is a nice rounded shape with angle limiting hinges, the only minor tweak left is that Ruth is going to put an image onto the lid for me, but that's not laser cut, that's good old fashioned pyrography.

Just in time for Valentines I have made this wooden heart shaped box. It uses the living hinge flexi sheets to create fancy curved sides and the rest is all lids and bottoms. This technique could be used for a wide range of shaped boxes, I'd love to try some other shapes if anyone has a desire. I even wrote an instructable about it, feel free to upvote me in the various competitions over there. (svg here)

I've been doing a bit of cutting for Rideworks Mountain Bikes Components while he's waiting for his new laser cutter to arrive. It's hard anodises 7075 Aluminium where the laser engraves away the black parts to leave silver markings on the part.

Evidently there are a million different things that could be laser cut for any given war game and that's not even including the scenery. These are cut in 3mm acid green acrylic and do look better on a darker background than the usual wood surface. You could start a business selling these things if you were so inclined and we happen to know some people who sell quality laser cutters.

Citizens of the Empire rejoice, you shall have rune tags again this year, and correctly date too. This is the fourth year in a row I've cut a batch of these, the year changes but otherwise it's remarkably similar. I had intended to do them in Obeche instead of Spruce this year but I didn't have enough. True story!

Not the 80s kind either. I had a massive pile of masking tapes and sticky tapes mostly just getting in the way and cluttering up benches. Two of these stuck to the wall gives me lots of places to store rolls and allows me to take whichever kind I need without disturbing the other (svg here)

I'm getting a bit out of sync but the resource box for Majestic Oak is now finished. I put a chunky rounded lid on the top of the box because it's a bit more impressive than the flat lid it had before. The logo was engraved on the underside of the lid so that it can be seen when the box is opened. This box is going to be on display at the 'What's Your Game' LARP kit faire this coming weekend. Now I can get on with making my box (with a lock on it)

This new storage box wouldn't be very good without a way of securing my treasures inside it. I made this lock and key prototype to sit in the front wall of the box. A simple 3 pronged key makes it a bit more interesting to turn. A hook drops down and clips into a latch on the lower half. Definitely file this one under 'should have taken more internal photos' I'll remember to add them when I make the real box up. (svg here)
