Mahogany Plank Spiral Staircase

Mahogany Spiral Staircase with frost tempered glass 'hand rails'


I rendered this mahogany spiral staircase about a year ago. I imagined this with the glass slotted through the wood beams and dowel mounted in place. Another option would be to run stressed threaded rod through the beams and clamp the glass in place with felt bushings, depending on the expected use of the staircase.

19 x 8 Center Lock Hub Wheel Design

Anodized Center Lock Wheel Rendering

The first wheel I’ve ever designed. This is a simple clean wheel with bronze anodized spokes designed for a center lock hub mechanism. The brake rotor is a full floating brake rotor modelled after many available big brake kits available today. This is actually the second rotor and hat I have designed. The first was a rotor kit for a race car I built about a decade ago. That rotor had a different hat and rotor bolt kit however, but was designed so that I was able to mount a set of AP Racing callipers to the car.

The wheel shown above is designed as a 19″ x 8″ wheel with a negative offset (for this render). The wheel design would be altered to fit a range of offsets easily and will clear any brake kit out there.

I have sketched out sets of wheels in the past, but this is the first time I have ever set one up in 3D and I think it turned out nicely!

Royal Canadian Air Cadet Wilga 2000MA Tow Plane

Pacific Region Royal Canadian Air Cadets Tow Plane

This layout was designed for the Pacific Region Air Cadet League for their new PZL Wilga, an aircraft that was intended to be used as the replacement for their storied L-19 Aircraft. The L-19′s had been in use for decades to haul the Air Cadets gliders around. The replacement program hit a roadblock when PZL shifted resources to Airbus and the Wilga program died. We sold this aircraft and now the Air Cadets are running upgraded Cessna 185′s.  Continue reading

Northern Lights College Sign Plan Revisit

Northern Lights CollegeThe layout shown here was a revisit to a set of layouts and signs that I developed for the Northern Lights College over a dozen years ago. The sign above was built 10′ tall x 40′ wide on a steel frame with concrete pylon bases (one for each post). This was just one of almost a dozen similar signs that we made for the college.  Continue reading

Corporate Reception Signage

Dimensional Sign with LED illumination

This is a sample layout for an office entryway sign. This dimensional sign has white LED illumination with a set of standoffs to be mounted to the wall, set off about an inch or so. The blue panels are mounted about 3/4″ away from the face of the backlit white panel and the letters are cut out to let light through them.
