Do you like making stuff out of glass?? Glad to hear it!!


Do you like making stuff out of glass?? Glad to hear it!! 

It might be easier to buy it from a shop. I know!! But for those, like me, who have “passion for creation”, buying it ready would be everything but satisfactory! 
Well, I really enjoy making stuff using glass! I just love them all!! The problem was that I could not easily alter the shape of glass pieces and cut them to be used in different new structures. 

The solution to that was this extreme multifunctional machine!!
The biggest challenge was the lack of space in my workshop!!  The space for glass processing stuff was very limited and thus, i had to make a multifunctional machine for glass alteration. 
It was difficult and time consuming, but the result definitely worth it! Don’t you thing??
I’ve just made it!! My little miraculous one!!!  it’s dimensions are 60cm(L) x 60cm(W) x 45cm(H)
A real space saving one, however it can do (almost) everything!! It can cut pieces of glass, smooth glass pieces and also smooth the cut edges of the glass. 

The results are just amazing! 
It can give any shape to glass pieces, giving me the opportunity to use glass in combination with other materials (like pieces of tree trunk) and create fabulous imaginative objects!
You may think “so what?  Just another glass grinder”!!  What does make it extreme???
Hold on a second!! Good news is that grinder heads can easily be changed!! Using a smaller or a larger head gives the freedom of smoothing, and thin the glass as much as you like!! 
Also gives the opportunity to work faster or slower according to the user’s needs at anytime. 

What is more, glass of any kind and any size, (even the broken ones that you would throw away), could be used to make amazing items!!! 
You are not throwing glass anymore!! 

It is the one helps me recycle any piece of glass and reduce the pollution!! I just love the planet i live in!! That’s a new way to save it!! 

What about the construction of the machine? 
Are you interested to know that?? Well, i have to admit that it was one of the most complicated ones, really time consuming and many different materials were used for it’s constructions. 
It operates using a motor from an old concrete mixer. Electric switches and wires, timber, rubber mats, screws, paints and of course metal pieces are some of the materials used to create the incredible look and reach the highest efficiency of this glass grinder / cutter!!

Extreme bottle cutting machine! Reuse and recycle old glass bottles!


Inspired from green way of living!!  

When you care about the environment, then you are trying to save the environment in any possible way!!
The need of  adopting  ”go green” way of life, in this day and age where scientists “sounds the alarm” over the planet’s pollution and natural life’s disaster combined with the impressive look and the low cost glass made structures have, gave me the idea!! 

The inspiring idea of constructing a machine which would give me the opportunity to accurately cut glass bottles in order to reuse and recycle them, reducing the waste, and, as a result reducing the pollution on earth. 

Processed glass bottles cut in different pieces could be used to make great glass creations like glass ashtrays, impressive jewellery, unique pieces for home decoration, glass lighting covers and many more imaginative ideas!!
That’s a great way of processing unused glass bottles!

Ready for more great news??
Well!! The machine can cut bottles in any width any size and any shape!!! That’s right!! Not enough?? 
Well we have some more!!  
This extreme machine can cut in really high speed, without the need of using cold or hot water during the cutting process!! 
Last but not least,  the construction of the machine  was incredibly efficient once almost the whole machine was made of old materials we did not need any more (two old motors - one for rotating the bottle and one for cutting the bottle, and many old pieces of steel)

The only part of the machine which has been bought was the diamond disk to cut glass which was the only part that increased (a little bit) the construction’s total cost.  
Oh!!! There is something I totally forgot to mention but i know you really wonder about!! Are you interested in the performance level?? I can confirm it would satisfy the needs of the most demanding ones!!

Extreme car jack's design only for women's ease? not necessarily!!


That’s a must have car accessory for ladies as well as for busy men whose time really matters!

What happens if you get a flat tire while driving, in the middle of nowhere and your time is extremely limited? Oh! Poor you!! 
You’ll probably miss the meeting, or be late at work unless if you have an extreme electric car jack!! 

Changing a tire using a traditional car jack could be a really difficult and time consuming procedure, especially if you are a woman!! 
This electric car jack can definitely free your hands!  
You need to put no effort once it’s upward and downward movement is totally managed by a remote controller.  

What's more, it’s a great time saver compared to the traditional hand jacks, while it takes only 30 seconds to lift a car and 30 seconds to drop it down. Moreover, it can safely lift and hold up to 1000kg weight! 
It only needs to be connected with car cigarette lighter to operate! Sounds good??  

And that’s not all!! What about it’s cost??  Looks expensive?? Take a deep breath!! 
It only costs €20 to make!!  Could you believe that??  
It’s construction’s  low cost is due to the fact that it is made of the pieces of your old hand jack! 
(yeah!! Great way of recycle and reuse your old fashioned one!) And an old windshield wiper motor and some old bicycle’s gears and chain!!! 
Of course!! We dispose nothing!! That’s a way of living!!

Extreme briefcase table


Exclusively for beach and beer lovers!!!!

This suitcase was design for four friends who really enjoy having fun on the beach.  
They love travelling around the country and visiting the great beaches!  
They just had difficulty on how to keep their beers freezing and how to fit a table in their small size cars.  
This was the extreme idea that solved  both problems at once!!  

A suitcase, which can fit up to 16 x 330cl beer cans and keep them cold for up to 6 hours when  filled with ice, and also hides an extendible  table!

What is more, the extendible table is equipped with four “hidden” cup holders and a “hidden”  card’s case.   
The suitcase was smartly designed to use the less possible space while offering the same benefits as a normal table. 
When it is closed, it’s height is only 20cm and  when it is opened, it reaches a height of 75cm.  It is easy to use as well as to move once it weighs about 11kgs when empty!!!

Year of construction: 2015

What about old water pipes? Never throw them away!!


Story behind the construction:

It was in September 2014 when two friends were moving from an old house to a new one.  
While they were trying to empty the storage in the basement of the house, among other forgotten stuff, they found a small wooden box.  
A box filled with old, useless water pipes. 

They just thought to keep them as a sweet memory, just to remember their old basement.  
They could never imagine that those pipes could turn into such an amazing desk lamp for their seventeen year old daughter and also keep the memories alive forever!!!  
This lamp is the prove that the simplest materials mixed with a bit of imagination could give an impressive, eye-catching result!!

Year of construction: 2014
