Interior decorating

The first thing I ever laser cut was the radiator cover top for the bathroom. I later made another copy for above the large Victorian mirror we found. For steampunk reasons I decided that it should be air kraken themed. So it has a large kraken made from scaffolding planks to hold up the bathroom cabinet, toothbrushes, razor and towel rail. The one holding the toilet roll was vetoed on grounds of good taste. There's also a model of an air kraken fighting an early air ship (lampshade) and some photocopied wallpaper in the fireplace. Good fun.
The kraken designs are all based on the work of Professor Geof, a local steampunk artist.

The tentacles were great fun to make, cutting sections out of old scaffolding planks and then shaping them with a jigsaw, spoke shave and Dremmel. By screwing sections together they can be made to curve in all directions despite being made of flat sections. 
The only real cost were the wooden button suckers, which cost far more than I could really afford, but in the name of art... Next time I'll use the Hackspace's CNC machine.
I ran out of scaffolding plank before I finished so had to find some more. I had a wonderful conversation with a roofer working a few streets away:
Me: Do you have any spare old broken scaffolding planks, please?
Him: No, sorry, mate.
Him: What are you after it for?
Me: I'm making a giant squid in my bathroom and need one to make the last tentacle.
Him: Wait a moment, I'll find one.
And he did.

Leeds Hackspace decoration

Book of Leeds front cover
The hackspace toilets needed some work and I'd had an idea about wood panelling , so put the two together. It kind of works and I like the fact that the prettiest part of the space is the last one visitors see.
The designs are from throughout history. left to right they are: celtic key pattern, ancient Roman mosaic pattern, Escher lizards, Islamic geometry, curved islamic geometry, Celtic birds pattern, ancient Greek spiral pattern, Celtic spirals and a deformed auxetic pattern.
Book of Leeds riddle page
A table for the weekly D&D nights. Each player's section contains a mythical (mostly) animal, an element colour, a Celtic key patter block and a USB charge point. Each section is divided from the next by a low barrier except the double section for the DM which has a pop-up larger shielding barrier.
This is the DM's view.
Book of Leeds inside lid
The table has a lid that fits over the top to protect it when not in use and an acrylic section in the middle for projecting maps, etc. from below.
There are plans for LED strips along the low barriers, so each player can be coloured appropriately (sickly green for poisoned, red for burned, etc.) or animated for fireballs, lightning bolts, etc.
