Another Mini Motorcycle

This new one came out very well. I'm pretty pleased with it.

Little House by the AC

Normally my scrappery is more focused on metal, and things that require welding or soldering to put together, but for this I used some 2x6 scraps that would have wound up in a bonfire and made a neat little house from them. This photo was taken at least a year after the house was made and frogs seem to like calling it home.

Santa's Little Helper

I made this a few years ago from scrap electrical compnents while spending a long night at work. The light at the top of the tree even lit up, and was powered by the wire running around like garland.

Ray Blaster Rifle

A "less wires, more piping" approach to making a ray gun than the previous post. This one was made with copper and brass for the most part, and the pressure chamber really works! Being all metal it has the same heft you'd expect something that can clear Earth from Marvin's view of Venus. Not as powerful as a Illudium PU-36 Explosive Space Modulator, but close.

Ray Blaster Pistol

Made from wire, electrical parts, different hardware store items and chunks from a couple motors. Retro-scifi-steampunkalicious!

Mini Motorcycles

I've recently been getting into making small models of motorcycles, including these two and another that I gave as a gift before I could get a picture of it modeled after a Yamaha Roadstar.


Various bits of steel from all manner of origins. One of the first things I did with my welder.

The Archer

The archer is made largely with motorcycle parts including mufflers, drive chains, frame, a shock absorber, and an engine cylinder. It's free standing and is about 180cm or 5'11" tall.

Scrap to Sculpture

Hello Internets! I'm Ronnie and this is where I'll hopefully be where I keep a portfolio of my various artistic tom-foolery. I've made sculptures and models from scrap and junk as long as I can remember, and will be putting some of it up here online. Let me know what you think and check out my main blog The Stuff I Made for my art as well as other things I make and work on.
