A new round of Viking-inspired laser cut horse-head combs
Another super-quick photo post today.
A while back I made a few different Viking Age-inspired horse-head combs based off an extant example. I wasn’t sure how well the tiny teeth would work on the laser cutter, so I only cut a few, but they turned out really well!
Bag handle for a Viking-inspired Hedeby – style bag inspired by the Oseberg ship burial.
I loved the Hedeby-inspired bag hangers/handles I made on the Maker Space laser cutter so much, that I wanted to try my hand at another set as well… though rather than going to the Birka style directly, I decided to merge the sawtooth style with… something a little different.
Three different sizes of the same wooden ‘bead hanger’ cut on the laser cutter.
A while ago you might remember that I made a single bead-hanger based off a 9th Century Finnish design, cast in pewter. I still haven’t had the chance to make a second to be able to wear it, but after having access to the laser cutter at a nearby Maker Space, I decided to see about making them in wood for a totally different project instead…
When I got to the MakerSpace I had a little room in the file, so printed another set of arched Viking Age bag hangers.
Just a super-quick post here today. When I was at the Maker Space working on a few other things, I also put a few more Viking-style bag handles/ hangers into the file to cut. I decided on one more set of the arched bag handles that I showed off in my previous post, and another set of the ‘chair back’ hangers too.
Finished naalbound tote bag
In an earlier post, I showed off the work-in-progress photo of a bag I was making using the nålbinding technique, that I displayed at an indoor Artisan’s “village”.
