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.
