Making the Impossible Joint / Dylan Iwakuni

Making Shihou Kama Tsugi (four-way goose neck joint). When you first look at it, it can be confusing as this joinery is on all four sides, without a way to be taken apart. But this joinery actually slides diagonally, making this illusion possible. The wood is Walnut and Birch — via Kottke

Plumbata: Roman war / Tod’s Workshop

Plumbata are substantial war darts that have their origins in Ancient Greece and were favoured by late Empire Romans. They have rather nasty barbed head, a lead weight for inertia and were thrown as fighting lines started to close. Their nickname amongst the Romans was Little barbs of Mars. Nasty as they look, how do you throw them and what do they do when they get there? — via Youtube

Charles Glore House / Frank Lloyd Wright

The Charles Glore House in Lake Forest, Illinois was built in 1954. The Usonian style home features  Frank Lloyd Wright trademarks like clerestory windows, built-in bookshelves, mahogany panels, four fireplaces (three of which are cantilevered), and an abundance of brick. The home also incorporates some updates, including an expanded dining room after enclosing a deck, new windows, and grey concrete floors in place of the badly patched-up original red radiant-heat floors — via Curbed
