Alright, how about somemeting different. Perhaps some random and non-car shit?
These first few are the unfortunate result of Rex being away from His workshop and suddenly struck with the need to build someting. Mental disorder anyone?
Tired of reading in the lav, why not make something?
One for the Mighty Boosh fans, this is what happens when Rex's coconut breaks into two perfect pieces. Milky Joe...
Andriod phone dock?
This is an outdoor table He built for the Girlie's birthday. Its built from 316 marine grade stainless. The top is reclaimed Jarrah. Actually the floorboards from some 100year old cottage or something. The wood is clear-coated, no stain. Colour is sensational.
Beer on Tap at 'Casa De Rex'
Donated chest Freezer
Building the top. More reclaimed Jarrah.
Clearcoated and finished top with lobsterback font.
Digital thermo-controller kit to reset the operating temp from -17deg to +4deg.
Kegs and CO2 for carbonation/dispensing.
The finished product. There was no way Rex was going to be able to repaint it good enough. So He decided to clad it with fabric instead. Theres also an etched glass spashback that was fitted later.
About two years ago a mate asked Him to build a SimSeat, giving Rex the idea to build a few to sell. The one below is the prototype that Rex kept for Himself for a while.
Aluminium frame work.
Yet more reclaimed Jarrah.
Runners and mounts for old Velo. Was just sitting around so Rex decided to put it to use...
Almost finished frame.
Angled pedal mount.
Finished setup. The frame was designed to slide together so it hopefully would make it easier to pack away when not in use.
This is the second version. The actual SimSeat that Rex ended up designing and building as a product to sell. It had to be;
- Lightweight, movable and pack down small as possible.
- Easy for buyer to mount their own seat if needed.
- Easy to get in/out.
- Suit different wheels etc.
- Nice enough looking that wives/girlfriends will approve
- Inexpensive final sale price
Works a treat. Rex's been using his for about a year and a half now with no problems. Even the Girlie likes (tolerates) it. Theres three left, if anyones keen
Adjustable length and pedal angle
Ajustable steering angle.
Folds up to and wheels around to pack away.
Sometimes Rex gets an idea that plagues Him. Eventually filling His sketch books until it just HAS to be built, as if it were a demon that has to be excorcised. This Stainless, Jarrah and Glass Telly pedestal was one of them.
A pair of bookshelf speakers, another excorcism project.
Currently Rex is plagued by thoughts of a 'Spitfire' Coffee table...
And Finally! The NYE 2009 waterslide!!!
