DAMASCUS MAGICIAN • When local bladesmith Matt James creates Damascus steel in his 21st-century workshop, he is following a tradition that goes back more than 1000 years and whose origins are the stuff of legends

PRESENT YOUR IDEA TO THE DREAM FACTORY — FIELDAYS INNOVATIONS 2021 • “These awards support ingenuity and creativity, the Kiwi can-do attitude, recognising people picking good problems or processes, and being creative in the way they solve or enhance them” — Gail Hendricks, Fieldays Innovations event manager

The tool shed

FATHER AND SON SHEDDIES • Tony Howse could well be described as a Kiwi version of the ‘universal man’

WAITING FOR THE PENNY TO DROP? • Making a tabletop push-penny might be your answer

MASTERING THE LATHE: III • A project to make a wall-mounted balance puts the fun into lathe work

THE SMART PEEPHOLE • It’s time to tackle the challenge of setting up the software and testing it

FLYING ON WATER • Fancy skimming across the top of the waves as the America’s Cup boats do? Maybe it’s time to try foil-boarding

FITTING A TRAVERSE DRIVE TO A MILLING MACHINE TABLE X AXIS • The Covid lockdown provided the opportunity for many long-dormant ideas to come to fruition. This one of them: a solution to a frustrating and monotonous task

THE RIVULET TABLE • Form and function — Coen Smit makes a little table that will please the eye as well as provide a solid surface for your coffee cup for years to come

MAGIC RADIO • An autonomous sound machine that can be operated with an intuitive interface on the touchscreen and play music with a MIDI keyboard or controller

THREE SUMMER PROJECTS • This month Murray learns you can’t rest on your achievements — Murphy is always out there waiting

REMEMBER WHEN • This museum is a wonderland of where you just might spy a treasure no one realised was there

ADVENTURES IN 3D PRINTER LAND • A sheddie learns that creating masterpieces with your very own 3D printer is no longer the stuff of fantasy, and this space-age technology is available to (almost) Everyman

NORDIC YEAST LOVES THE HEAT • Traditional brewers in one of the colder parts of the world have found the secret to brewing in warm temperatures

WHAT ABOUT MY DAD, TOM FRATER? • Was it something in the water? By all accounts, at the same time as Bill Hamilton was inventing his jet engine, other Kiwis were busy in their sheds devising methods of water propulsion to power their craft

A MODEL CITIZEN • Ted Egan could be said to be part of the history of the Coromandel — not only has he lived in Thames all his life, but he creates models of the region’s historic buildings, frequently using kauri that has also spent all its life on the peninsula
