Natural Tree Branch LED Lamp

Failed Project:
Reason: after using it some time it turn out to be  too bright, disturbing my eyes. tried to defuse it but no space there on the branch. so i just destroyed  it to use the LEDs for another type of Lamp to be used on my desktop.it flopped on youtube as well didn't receive enough likes and Hackaday didn't publish it so i removed it from youtube. also the basket was a little too big to used for the base, i couldn't find a small one.
this lamp is made of natural tree branches. i found these branches in a windy day on the road. brought them home and saw both of them have got a really nice shape and thought i should make a lamp out of them.
i started my work by drilling them and found a wooden basket to put them in and also a LED to make the light.the LED is from a simple bulb so i opened it and took the inverter and the led apart and put them in different places for my lamp. the LED is inside the wood branch cavity and the inverter is mounted inside the wooden basket. so finally the result was cool and i got to like this project and i am going to use it for my study or cutting vegetables.
see some pictures of this project how i made it and  there is a link to YouTube, you can click and watch the video of this project as well.

Rotating Toolbox on Workbench

this little toolbox is for managing my small tools like screw drivers,pens,sharp cutters etc. this should be always on my workbench while i am working on a project, it is very easy to access important tools using this box.the other reason i built this was the cool effect, it covers the blank spaces around a subject while i am filming a project, if too many blank spaces appear around a subject repeatedly, the entire clip would turn out to be boring.
the 3rd reason to build this was the middle titling issue. usually some kind people steal my videos from my channel and put them back on YouTube without even crediting me or my channel. so i have printed and pasted some link descriptions on each side of the toolbox to appear in the middle of a video always, at least this will help other audiences to find my channel on YouTube. the 4rth reason for building this was the product promotion issue, usually while i receive some electronics or DIY tools and stuff from other companies to show them on my videos, i have to show a link to their website as well. to cut the video directly to a link-shot on screen is a  very naive editing style and it will receive some negative feedback from the audiences. so for this reason i have to attach the printed link on a side of this toolbox and let the viewers see it while i am normally working on a project :)
this wasn't cool enough? i think it was.
see some pictures of this project below and at the end there is a link to take you to YouTube and see the video of this project.

The Magical HDR-SR11 Compared To HDR-SR10

I bought a SONY HDR-SR11 from eBay this year. I had 2 hdr-sr10 from last year so I have been thinking SR11 would be the same, until I found out some topics on reddit about SONY SR11, they have mentioned that there are differences. I got curious over this and tried to see what really those differences are. Couldn’t wait longer found a list of SR11s and SR12s on eBay and finally ordered a SR11.
The moment I received the camera and took it in my hands I could feel the differences, it was heavier, bigger with  a wider screen and a huge Battery!
Well it isn’t all; I turned  the camera on and holly mother of beautiful nature! The picture quality was so amazing, so deep and magnificent! it got even better when I adjusted my HDMI monitor for it.
I liked it very much from the moment I received it. now everything is great about this camera. See some pictures taken with SR11.

 this wooden frame is for my new project it is an LED shade, i will upload this on my youtube channel.

 the left side is the SR11 screen and the right side is SR10, notice that it is wider and the side switches are push buttons with much more contrast and easy to press.

SR10's screen could not cover the SR11's screen, as you can see on this picture, it is slightly visible.

SR11 LENS data is 1.8/4.9-58.8
SR10 LENS data is 1.8/3.1-46.5 which is obviously smaller than SR11's Lens.

 SR11 is slightly longer in physical length than SR10.

SR11 has got a huge battery !

 500 minutes of recording !

 SR11 comes with a built -in manual focus adjustment button, this thing is missing in SR10.

 i have pointed out the manual focus gear and button on SR11.

in this picture you can see the SR11 is located on my right side on a tripod. it gives the signal to the monitor on the right.

the table you see on the right side, the tripod is located on it, is a separated table from the main working bench, it is because the vibration from the Grinder (left side) would damage the Hard Drive of the Camera. i have made that table completely separate without any attachment with the main working bench and between them; there is a layer of very thick sponge in case if someday it comes close to the main bench, the sponge should absorb the vibrations.

the curtains were white (white paper) it still allowed the sunshine to pass the window and create a hard-light spot on the working bench. that is why i replace them with a blue fabric. meanwhile the paper wasn't strong enough it would tear apart quickly even by a small touch or scratch.
