        Bonjour and Welcome to my website !

I 'm presenting here some pages about my passion for Wood and its crafts.

I particularly like the "singing wood", the one from witch  musical instruments are made, but I also like to work other materials like leather and metal.

The goal of this site is not commercial, it is simply to share with the largest community my little experience in these domains.

I let you discover the topics that fascinate me by clicking on the tiles above.

In all my activities, the Internet is a providence. I learn a lot, and it allows me to interact with other enthusiasts.
Feel free to react to articles and to ask me questions if necessary, I will be happy to help you.

I wish you a good reading, and lots of pleasure in all your works !
Feel free to react and comment the articles or to contact me  in the "to contact me" section.

 

Christophe Mineau, from France.

A small spinning top made by myself  out of solid steel, inspired from the movie with  Leonardo Di Caprio  "Inception".

If it spins indefinitely, we are in a dream, if ends up stopping, then it is real life....

FB

A small video where you can see it spinning for 2 minutes :

About the method for building it, unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures, but roughly speaking,, it is step turned to a shape closed to the profile you want, then semi-finished with a half round file, then finished with emeri grit clothe, from grain 120 to 600.
