Who are these strange fellows?

My photo
Manbench Industries; Purveyors of general mayhem since 1994, a blog to follow the crazed, possibly deranged projects and emotive musings, of an undergraduate engineer, and an apprentice organ builder who have always felt they were born in the wrong age. Follow us as we, re-write history, learn lost skills, discover strange new worlds, break things, rant at things, mend things, make new things and generally find ways of passing the day instead of doing "proper work" !

Graphics Graphics everywhere but not a drop to Graphic.

Graphic design is something I've found myself dabbling with on a number of projects,
Shown here is my design for a plaque to mount on my custom built drum kit, the final design was then lazer etched onto an transparent acrylic sheet and mounted over a black backing.  This sort of thing can be easily knocked up in a few minutes on a word publisher, but just help to make a product look complete!

 I think my biggest flaw as a "Maker" is that I tend to spend more time producing these "Finishing Touches" than actually completing the project itself! Fortunately, our mutual friend "The Engineer", tends to get bored with a project before its time for finishing touches, so between us if we can put aside artistic differences, can usually make something great... when we're not frying grapes. (But thats a video for a different time.)
