I made four batches of chocolates for Christmas. Some of my first attempts at using coloured cocoa butter to decorate them.
Flavours: El Dorado 12 Year Rum, Smirnoff Peppermint Twist Vodka, Van Gogh Espresso Vodka, and Disaronno.
Last year I built this Marquee Style Snowman. The Blue and Green lights are blinking bulbs.
Latest batch of chocolates, flavored with Grand Marnier. It might be a little difficult to see, but the ones on the left have been decorated with gold pearl dust.
Made two batches of filled chocolates this weekend. First batch was flavored with Cointreau, the second batch was flavored with Disaronno.
Made some chocolates filled with a water ganache flavored with Van Gogh Espresso Vodka.
I've made a few more turning tools, 3mm & 5mm parting tools, some detail tools and some hollowing tools.
Bought some dollar store crap and transformed it into wood handled crap...
I built a quick and dirty base for my cell phone and cheap stereo for the work shop.
I made a quick and dirty holder for my turning tools. I have plans to make a few more tools, so I'll need to upgrade this soon.
The tools that came with my cheap lathe were rather poor quality, so I made my own using carbide inserts.
