Leather Boots with reversible cleats

bootstracks  Leather Boots with reversible cleats

The Reversible Cleats Leather Boots.

These leather boots have built-in, reversible cleats that provide traction on snow, ice, and slush. Two sets of tempered steel-studded cleats–one in the forefoot with 11 studs and one in the heel with five studs–are set flush with the sole such that when the cleats are reversed, only the rubber tread will make contact with floors or carpets. On your porch or landing, you need only flip the cleats to expose the studs; the durable plastic housing nestles back into its grooves, allowing the cleats to grip any slippery surface for confident footing. The uppers are made from waterproofed leather and rise 7 1/2″ from the heel; zippers on either side makes for easy on/off. They are lined with wool and have removable felt insoles. Imported from Canada. Black. Whole sizes only 7-13. (3 1/2 lbs.)

DIY Typographic Character Coasters

cup coasters

cup coasters

A simple design project for font lovers: Single-character typographic coasters.

We started this project looking at some of the interesting variations amongst common fonts. Blowing them up to this size lets you start to see those differences more clearly than usual. Cutting them out as tangible forms takes it a step further– you can feel the curves.

Also, they make pretty good coasters.

The coasters above were laser cut from 1/8″ thick cork. The fonts represented include Times New Roman, Gill Sans, Courier New Bold, Futura Bold Italic, and Miso. We picked characters that seemed appropriate for making into single-piece coasters, and scaled them to size, assuming a 3″ diameter glass could be placed on top. For the caret, that meant a larger font size than for the octothorpe.

The 1/8″ cork sheets are from McMaster-Carr (9487K3), and are relatively inexpensive. They cut well with a hobby knife if you have a steady hand.

As we’ve mentioned before, these days it is straightforward to get parts laser cut for you. Local laser cutting shops are becoming more common and online services like Ponoko and Pololu make it easy to run small projects like these.
