614: (64/365) Brickwork Fireplace

Posted by wonko on March 5, 2017 in 365-2017, furniture, geometry |

Brickwork tessellations are a bit of work, but it is nice to see a model that uses the tessellation as the texture of another structure: This is Ichiro Kinoshita’s “Fireplace by Brickwork”, a torturous fold that requires a ton of pre-creasing and as the scale I chose (square cut from an A3 sheet), the final […]

540: Parliament

Posted by wonko on July 4, 2016 in blarg, domestic, fantasy, humanoid, paper, wtf |

Voting is something democratic societies hold as an important right. Some counties have compulsory voting, most allow citizens to choose whether they want to vote – all too often the result is the same – groups of opinionated, empty-headed people are elected to represent the views of the common people. Anyone who knows me, realises […]

485: Segway

Posted by wonko on December 7, 2014 in domestic, fantasy, vehicle |

…so I am a teacher, and I teach senior students: I have, on occasions, joked about how cool it would be to own a Segway – my classes are physically far apart and getting between campuses takes time, hence the idea that a PTD (personal transport device) would be cool. I _never_ in my wildest […]

483: Dollar SLR Camera

Posted by wonko on September 19, 2014 in domestic, machine |

A work colleague is going on Long Service Leave – lucky bastard!  It appears he had no end of trouble buying a camera for travelling, so I thought I would make him one as an hooroo gift: Designed by Won Park, this little SLR Camera is tiny, but has a viewfinder, winder lever, shutter button, […]

471: Folding Chair

Posted by wonko on February 22, 2014 in furniture |

Needing to clean my brain, I looked for some box-pleating (as that is absorbing, fiddly and it is difficult to to do or think anything else while doing it): I came across a design for a folding chair, folded in 24ths and decided to give it a go.

469: Fiddly Folding

Posted by wonko on February 9, 2014 in domestic |

My heuristic is that we do not get mail on Fridays – not sure it is always true but mostly. Last Friday I therefore did not check the mailbox. Sunday I discovered my Tanteidan had been delivered on Friday and I had left it for nearly 2 days before opening it. On the cover, Gen […]

463: Going Crackers

Posted by wonko on December 16, 2013 in boxes, domestic |

Contemplating buying Christmas Crackers, you gain a sense of waste and expense – they are hideously expensive and full of stuff no sane person would actually want: …so I thought about folding some. I am fond of a twist, and whilst exploring the maths of a hex  twist, I discovered a method for making a […]

The Whole is Greater than the Sum of Parts

Posted by wonko on September 15, 2013 in animal, dinosaur, domestic, fantasy |

You may remember I recently folded a Chuka Ryu, and it had a particular spiral bend to it… … that spiral corresponds to the diameter of the white keep precisely – one sits inside the other. This now tells a totally different story – what is happening here? Add your narrative suggestions to the comments […]


455: The White Keep

Posted by wonko on September 7, 2013 in domestic, wtf |

In days of old, when people of a township were threatened they retreated (as their last best hope) into the Keep – a heavily fortified “core” of the castle that was designed to withstand the most vigorous of attacks So I had this odd but interesting idea that it should, given the right size of […]

447: Black Forest Cuckoo Clock

Posted by wonko on August 3, 2013 in furniture, geometry, machine |

In need of some therapy, and with my procrastinator set on FULL, I embarked on a punishing box-pleating exercise: I remember as a kid in New Zealand we had a cheezy Cuckoo Clock (Mum loved it) that used to have metal pinecones as counterweights and a faux timber case that used to “cuckoo” and scare […]
