Default Cornice & Curtains

We're struggling with these curtains. I bought the pleater but the material wants to twist when we remove it from the pleater and try to gather it. I'm guessing it's because I didn't pre-qwsh it and the spray starch is shrinking it. I found an alternative.

I machined all the window cornices out of white corian and bought some 1/2" x .04 thick styrene plastic strips which I will cover with fabric (glued on). The tops of the strips are punched with a .08" paper punch and a plastic rod inserted. I'm waiting on the spacers to get here so the vertical blinds/curtains will be evenly spaced.

That's an innovative method - I'm looking forward to seeing how they look when finished.

Default 3d printer

Been busy with other projects and finally got back to the house. I just purchased a PRUSA 3d printer kit and can finally print my appliances and bathroom fixtures. The quality is incredible and will post some pics when I get a chance. Furniture is not out of the question either. You might have to re-model some of the drawings to make things work.

Default Wolf Range

It still needs to be assembled. Just a trial fit of parts. It will get painted black and there's a glass insert for the oven door.
