Where to cast jewelry and custom logos


We are working on replicating and creating a master for this belt buckle this week. The brass piece on the right of this image is the original. The design looks great but we want to make more durable and slightly heavier. This original is rounded on the front but is flat on the back which seem to create more friction on pant material. We have carved out a wax master design on the left to be used to create our master belt buckle tomorrow.

Everything looks great so far, albeit some difficulties getting things started. The customer is currently in Chiang Mai and would like to complete 1 batch of production before he returns to the US. We pushing to have everything done by the end of this week.

CMU agriculture and biotech Fair


The first 10 days in May, Chiang Mai University hosts its Agriculture and Biotech Fair on their Biotech campus at Maehia Canal Road. I love these fairs. It’s fun for everyone– even the kids!

Yes, it’s focus is definitely agriculture and biotechnology but this is a huge campus and can certainly host more than just the agriculture enthusiast and the organizer of this Fair got it right by aiming for everyone in the population. More than a 100 stands of food concession, 100 or more stands for seeds, farms and agricultural companies. After walking around a bit, I sense the biggest hit is the playground of bouncing castles, ferris wheel, electric train and whatever else. Kids just love this stuff!
