the traditions of men...

The Field Lab - Sun, 2019/01/27 - 12:28pm
        Beware lest any man spoil you        through philosophy and vain deceit,       after the traditions of men,       after the rudiments of the world,       and not after Christ.   Colossians 2:8

A lithophane (French: lithophanie) is an etched or molded artwork in very thin translucent porcelain that can only be seen clearly when back lit with a light source.  More recently lithophanes have been made with the use of CNC  machines and 3D printing.  Watched a couple of tutorials on YouTube and thought I would give it a shot.  The software tells the printer to print the light areas in a thin layer and the darker areas progressively thicker.  57,62,33,0,C

there is always time...

Someone contacted me this morning who wanted to buy 4 coins ASAP even though I have sort of closed down the mint for now.  Decided I could squeeze some pours in today.  The 3D printer just paid for itself...  54,67,30,0,B

Hello Home Grown members and not yet members!
As Home Grown is preparing and organizing our 2019 classes/events, we hope your new year is off to a fabulous start. I know all this snow we are getting is really helping the trees and plants and it is a good time to plan out your gardens and for us to plan out the Home Grown New Mexico classes. We are excited about several new things on the horizon we want to share with you.

We are gearing up for an exceptional season of supporting our members with gardening, preservation, fermentation and cooking classes to help us all create a more sustainable life for ourselves whether you live in the city or countryside.

We will start our season with the Seed Exchange which will take place at Frenchy’s Barn from 4-6 pm on March 13th.

These are a SAMPLE of just a FEW of the classes on the line-up this year (class dates TBD):
FERMENTATION-Learn to Make Kimchi class
COOKING OUTDOORS-Solar Cooking class
PRESERVATION-“What’s Jamming’-Learn to make and can homemade jams during our fruit season
BEES-Build a native bee house class
GARDENING-Learn How do Drip Irrigation systems for gardeners

We are working on dates for all our classes right now.
We wish you all the best success in your endeavors as the season gets underway. Stay tune for the classes to be released in late February. Together let’s make this one the best year yet!

last silver for awhile...

The Field Lab - Tue, 2019/01/22 - 2:52pm
Just finished another order of AA desire chips for the client who prompted me to figure out how to successfully cast these.  Now that they are done and I know the 3D printer will work for me printing masters of my own design to cast from - the Field Lab mint will be on the back burner for the coming months as it's time to shift gears and put on the tool belt.  Six yards of gravel is coming for the construction site tomorrow and foundation materials will be delivered early next week so it's time to go into building mode.  55,66,60,0,W
