580: (30/365) Jun Maekawa’s Six-Roofed Regular Dodecahedron

Posted by wonko on January 30, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Trolling around in my collection of Tanteidan magazines, as one does, I came across a little 6-piece modular designed by Jun Maekawa: Oddly named until you notice that each of the modules is a little “house” shape, complete with pitched roof.

572: (22/365) Origami On The Brain

Posted by wonko on January 22, 2017 in 365-2017, bird, geometry, humanoid, paper |

Those who know me realise I am a little obsessed with paper folding, some would say to excess. The truth of the matter is I am constantly amazed what you can coax a flat sheet to do. I think I missed my calling as a materials engineer: I like models that I can visualise, as I […]

564: (14/365) Francesco Guarnieri’s Stella Garland

Posted by wonko on January 14, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

I was casually puddling around in origami blogs, as you do, and came across the one page diagram of this little charmer and decided to give it a whirl: 8 pages, sort of a spectrum, combine in a whirl not unlike the leaf garland popular in Roman times however the locking mechanism leaves a small […]

513: Koh’s Bubble-Eyed Goldfish

Posted by wonko on October 4, 2015 in fish |

Not quite sure how I missed this little beauty in the flurry of folding fishies, but Sensei Koh messaged me on fakebook and asked why I had not folded it. Truth is I was dazed and confused (and just a little fished out) and must have just missed it: That is a pity, this little […]

490: Shake, Rover, Shake

Posted by wonko on January 4, 2015 in scifi, vehicle |

I have been a fan of Star Trek since it was possible to be so, love the franchise, movies, series, the lot. I saw a diagram that resulted in an ATAT (All-Terrain Armoured Transport) – one of many fairly silly designs from The Babylon 5 universe, and with some shaming from a friend (thanks Dodes) I decided […]

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, […]

481: Two Dollar Dragon

Posted by wonko on September 18, 2014 in dinosaur, fantasy |

…so I am folding this crazy big dragon at the moment – insane 2mx2m square to make something ridiculously time-consuming.  A work colleague of my wife gave me a pair of raggedy USD$1 greenbacks and asked if I could do anything with them: I ironed the notes to crisp them up and flatten the worse […]

467: Weave

Posted by wonko on February 1, 2014 in geometry |

Early morning catching up on Facebook, I saw a friend had posted a link to a Youtube clip of a woven ring: I took 8 11cm squares (left-overs from the torus project) and split them into quarter strips (making a total of 32 strips of paper), then folded each strip in half longways then in […]

448: Cutting a Rug

Posted by wonko on August 4, 2013 in humanoid |

I am old enough to remember the “good old days” when partners dance WITH each other as opposed to the modern trend of dancing AT each other: Flicking through a yellowed and falling apart copy of “Origami 4” by Robert Harbin, I came across a Neal Elias figure I had not remembered nor tried. Using […]

441: Ballerina Kit

Posted by wonko on May 5, 2013 in humanoid |

Most parents know little girls go through the “I want to be a Ballerina” stage: This is a wonderful thing; dance, culture, beauty and movement are all things that make our lives richer. Few go on to be professional ballet dancers (more’s the pity, few fit the fragile stick-insect archetype) but learning dance improves coordination, […]
