INFORMATION

Wood is simple Acacia. Carved with knife and some power carving
equipment. 100C BLO bath for 15 mins, turpentine and beeswax mix as top
coat.

The name Vesalius reflects to my anatomy interests and also the artworks
by this famous anatomist of the XVI. century. His artworks are eye
catching, precise but still stylish and unique. Forms are not
over-detailed and the overall look is well balanced. There's an even
distribution of information.

My goal was to carve the frame with a sketchy appearance to depict
tension and forces and try to keep balance between function and artistic
aspects.

The lanyard solution just fits to my taste. Instead of paracord I used a
rough leather stripe soaked with paraffin to reduce forces on my wrist
and maintain softness. The joint is a modified version to reduce the
twisting forces and keep a fine alignment perpendicular to the frame.

Hi,

Am happy you like it and thanks for your comment!

Overall length: 150mm
Fork width: 92mm
Tip width: 24mm

Biggest thickness at center point: 25mm
Biggest thickness of bounding box: 30mm (it means when you watch the side view the handle is risen by 5mm above table.)

Cheers, Tremo
